It’s been a couple of weeks since I posted – but they all have past somewhat like a blur – they have gone so fast!
This week I met some happy little faces at my art and craft workshops in Sydney’s inner west, Leichhardt.
We jam packed our first lesson learning some watercolour tricks of the trade and creating artworks to take home and hang up on the wall.
Tuesday, I dropped off my paintings to the Drummoyne Art show, which opens on Friday night, September 26th. It’s a 9 day show, so plenty of time to pop down. I’ll be there on Saturday 27th 1.30-5pm and Sunday October 5th 1-4pm, if anyone wants to say hello. I have 8 paintings in total exhibiting. This is one of them – 1/2 sheet named: ‘I don’t like Mondays’.
Wednesday was school holiday workshop #2 – Screen printing!
Now I’ve been asked, “Why screen printing? You’re a fine artist”. For ten years I worked in the fashion industry and screen printing was a part of my job…and hey it’s fun! I am a really creative, crafty and hands-on type of person. I enjoy to create more that just art and I don’t think there is anything better for a child’s mind than to use it creatively. I have a big passion for children and support hands-on learning and passing of time.
Here are some of our work!
It is a busy part of the year with Spring exhibitions. I’ve been able to write this entry, as I am taking it a bit easier this week.
I sold the following painting at the Nepean Art Show held on the first weekend of September.
‘Off to St Mark’s’
27 x 17.5cm
And coming up is my first trip to South Hurstville to exhibit in the St Mark’s Annual Art Show!
