Exhibitions, Demonstrations and a Musical

Been a busy bee this last couple of weeks. I think I need another holiday!

Checking out the paintings

Exhibition Opening

The Arts Preview at The Sydney Royal Easter Show was as usual a great night out. How lovely to recieve a Highly Commended for a Still Life and then sell one of my paintings the next day. You will still be able to see the wonderful array of arts and crafts at the Show until next week.


Met up with the lovely students and Elaine at Fun Time Art, Baulkham Hills. I am looking forward to finishing the two pieces I worked on.

Les Miserables opened last week at the Capitol Theatre. I did see the show years ago and again last year in Melbourne. But I very much enjoyed this production. I laughed, I cried, I was on the edge of my seat for the emotional bits. Well done to all involved. One of the highlights was discovering the paintings of Victor Hugo
being the inspiration for the set design.

Victor Hugo:Le Rocher de l'Ermitage dans un paysage imaginaire ("Ermitage Rock in an imaginary landscape")
Exhibiton #2
"The History Keepers" set up and opened at Sassafras Creek, Kurrajong. A great array of paintings, prints, woodwork, & textile art from the members of Hawkesbury Artists & Artisans Trail. I recommend a visit, and you can have a very nice meal there too.

Wen t back to the Easter Show on Monday and hung out at the Derivan Matisse stand with artist Phillipa Thomas who was demonstrating the dry mediums. I started a couple of large works, hope to work more on them when I am back next week.
