I have been head down, completing commission pieces of late. Most being framed and given as Christmas presents, which is not far away now!
The below watercolor commission, was sent to the USA last week. Selected from a painting on my online gallery, I repainted the piece, including elements that only the gift giver and receiver would understand. I’m glad to be able to capture a special family memory for them.

I also have completed the following painting for a client, capturing a loved house and it’s amazing surroundings.

I was asked to paint a second version ‘Paradise for Kids’ fundraising piece. Which I also have completed recently.

If you would like to inquire about a commission piece, you can contact me here. I also repaint pieces, currently available. Thank you.
I recently was commissioned to do a raw piece of work, which would be donated for a fundraising event for ‘Paradise for Kids’. I was happy to see the painting go to live auction at the event, with the winning bid of $5000 raising much needed funds for P4K (Paradise 4 Kids) and their missionary work in Africa.
I had come down from the Springwood Art Show, where it was a treat to see 3 red dots beside my collection of work there. It’s a great feeling as an artist, to think that someone has really liked my work and will have my painting hanging on their walls.:)
I walked in to collect my Penrith Show paintings and a surprise to me – I had won first place in the watercolour section! While talking about the lovely ribbon that you receive, someone pointed out that behind me, was another one of my works, with another prize on it (‘Council Overall Winner of Painting and Drawing’).
That equals 5 surprises in a matter of hours, and therefore resulting in some very happy (and sore) cheeks for the drive home.

August saw the close of the hospital exhibition, ‘Celebrating Life with Watercolours’. Had a couple of sales and took the work down last Friday.
Since my last post, I have completed a number of works. Here are some of them!
