Start Spinning Those Plates

My mind is very full at moment, I have a few extra things in my life to think about and the arts business has filled up my dance card also. All is fabulous, so I shall enjoy the ride...


"The Bush, My Lover" acrylic 65 x 55cm
Not one but 2 notifications came in recently! I am a finalist in the Corangamarah Art Prize with "The Bush, My Lover"

and a finalist in the Flanagan Art Prize with "This Summer Zone".

"This Summer Zone" acrylic 65 x 55cm

I used to live in Ballarat, Victoria. That would be very handy right now - would save me courier fees and I could drive to the openings!

What Have I Been Doing

Patricia Devine (my Mum!) and I at Purple Noon 
I visited an exhibition opening at Purple Noon Gallery. "Memories of Seasons Past" Wonderful textiles by Tony Meskauskas and delightful collagraphs by one of my favourite printmaker - painters Madelaine Szymanski.

An acrylics workshop at Castle Hill Art Society kept me so busy that I was unable to take a photo. You will have to imagine the lovely pieces being created.

Ku-Ring-Gai Art Society show was hung this week and I was honoured to be asked to co - judge the exhibition along with renowned artist Kasey Sealy. What a great space to hang paintings - the ramp to the different levels at St.Ives Shopping Village has been refurbished and lit and there are about 280 paintings to see.
