artist diary…002

I just completed a very busy week. Thank God for friends who helped along the way.

I began my week returning from Queensland and launching my kids holiday workshops! I am looking forward to running these kids art and craft classes, as they are always fun for kids and teacher.

I traveled out west to Richmond to deliver my paintings to the Richmond Market Place Sale. I had two sales here (Sunset Harbour and Crossing the Grand Canal) and was lucky enough to meet one of my buyers during the weekend.

While I was out there, I went on my first plein air outing with the Nepean Plein Air Group, who meet up every Thursday morning. I’ve been meaning to do this for a long time and to be honest I knew nearly straight away, I had to get back out there.

Painting straight from nature.

In peace.

I’m going to like this.

A new adventure begins. (It was actually quite romantic and picturesque to see painters scattered across a field, deep in inspiration).

Off to Ebenezer, NSW !  I went to pick up my paintings from the Art Fair at the Ebenezer Public School.  A storm was brewing and I definitely wore the wrong shoes. I could not help but stop along the way to take reference photos that I am already eager to paint! The best part about traveling! One less painting to pick up, my ‘Drifting Along the Canals’, Venice painting had been sold! Good news after a long trip!

But the week wasn’t over yet! One last drop off for the Penrith Show, which runs on the last weekend of August. Check out my side bar for more info.

PHEW! That was a big week.
