I received a couple of commendations recently for my watercolours at the Drummoyne Art Show. I don’t like being in front of people, but we award winners, had to go on stage, collect our certificates and pose for these wonderful photos with local councilors…
Back in January, I received a phone call from 2 women wanting to use my artwork as a wallpaper feature wall. They were part of a TV show and it was not hard to guess they were contestants on HOUSE RULES on Channel 7.
They initially has asked if I could go and paint one of my paintings on a feature wall. I advised them, that unfortunately this can not be done with watercolour (as they wanted a watercolour work). So instead, I provided them with an image that they could use to blow up and make into a wallpaper.
This episode was aired on the 21st-22nd May, revealing to the NSW contestants my Harbour Bridge Sunset painting, which featured in their new Lounge Room.
On another note, I was accepted as one of the 350 finalists at this months Hunters Hill Art Exhibition. 1000 artworks are submitted, so I was very pleased I made the shortlist.
I later found out that I also received a ‘Highly Commended’ award for one of my pieces and also sold two of my works during the show 🙂
And finally, I had success at the Oyster Bay Art & Craft Festival, selling one of my cafe street scenes.
I had a busy month and now can collect myself (and paint a lot more!) in the 2 month break until my next exhibition.
It was a chilly Autumn morning taking these promo photos with the students of Oyster Bay Public School, for this weekend’s Art and Craft Festival. Love the colour of the trees in the background…but hey…that’s just the artist in me!
