My return post

I haven’t posted in a while!

I think life just got a head of me for a while. I was sick, then went on a break and then just busy! But I though last week’s news was worth posting about…

In my first year of being able to enter into the Coal & Allied Singleton Art Prize, I enjoyed the drive up  to deliver my paintings for the show. I received a pleasant phone call later that week to tell me that I had won first place in the ‘Miniatures’ category! Yay!! (Alas I don’t have a photo of the piece).

Pick up day came around and I went around collecting my paintings. Double delight – I sold my full sheet Venice piece ‘Buona Sera Venice’. I hope the buyer enjoys it for many years to come 🙂

There is one more month of my exhibition ‘Celebrating Life with Watercolour’ at the Randwick Children’s Hospital. The catalogue can be viewed here.

And although life has gotten a bit more busy of late, here are some of the works I have completed since I last posted.

Hopefully, from now on, I will be posting more frequently – so please come back and check what I’m up to from time to time 🙂

Two days to go…

Today saw Joe and I travel to the Randwick Children’s Hospital to set up our exhibition ‘Celebrating Life with Watercolour’, which opens Thursday night, May 28th.
Assisted by Louis Vuitton volunteers and Art Staff, we hung our 26 pieces across our space on Level 1.

Here are some photos of us at work today 🙂 We definitely felt tired on our trip home.
(Thanks Joe for pushing the trolleys of work!)
