My Feet Hurt

Just had a busy but enjoyable weekend teaching a class at Little River Art Studios. A lovely venue set in the rolling green of Grose Wold and the participants delighted me with their colourful creations. I hope I managed to burn off some the calories incurred from the morning teas.

Little River Art Studios
Although I missed the opening of Drummoyne Art Society show, it was lovely to hear of a Highly Commended going to my linocut entry "Boy".

at Ferry Artists Gallery

The Ferry Artist's Gallery at Wisemans Ferry opened a new exhibition with the "Secret River" as its inspiration. Here is a picture of myself with fellow artist Ulla Abildgaard - one of my paintings "Landscape on Linen" is in the background.

Works by Lara Cross
Breathing Colours gallery also opened an exhibition that day. I attended and caught up with fellow artists and guests. I succumbed to temptation and came home with some eyewateringly bright jewelry by Lara Cross of Glory Box Designs

Melamine Plate, Gabby Malpas

For something different, I managed to go the the Collectors Plant Fair. I purchased a bromeliad to replace the one our dog chewed up the previous year. And also managed to catch up with artist Gabby Malpas who creates beautiful watercolours and has them available as wonderful homewares.

Hopefully the coming week may be a little quieter. I really need to spend more time in the studio. Paintings dont paint themselves!

"Landscape on Linen"

The Hawkesbury Show is coming up. If the huge Sydney Agricultural Show was too much for you, then this one is the perfect size for a family day out. And there are some pretty good paintings in the arts pavillion :)

Be blessed!
