A New Year

A new year and things just run away from you. It’s nearly May and that means we’re nearly half way through the year. Time flies and I just have noticed that I haven’t posted in a looonnng time!

I recently received 2 Commendations for my work, at the Drummoyne Art Awards + 2 sales. Yippee!

Plus 3 Sales at the Royal Easter Show last week.

I would like to say a big “thank you” to my buyers out there! I appreciate the support you provide for my work and hope you enjoy my art on your walls for years to come!

‘Boats on the Bay’, Commended in Canada Bay District Artwork. Judge’s comments: “Nicely handled watercolour”

‘Lets meet at Town Hall’, Commended in Watercolour. Judge’s comments: “Lively and well observed art work”

Surprises

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.

‘By The Window’, Overall Council Winner

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!
