I have just returned from a trip to northern NSW, where I spent most of my time collecting reference material for new work. I love the farmland up there! It’s pristine, it’s untouched. I walked and walked and walked..and came back very fit. I’m hoping to be plein air painting up there one day.
I had some good news when I got back to Sydney – 3 of my paintings sold at the 50th Anniversary Drummoyne Art Exhibition. I was very pleased!
But I did stumble on a problem… I came back and couldn’t find any motivation to start any work. But when I made a long long list of all the things I needed to get done (and soon!), I think that kicked me into gear this week.
On Tuesday I met with a lovely art curator to finalise an exhibition space for next May. It’s very exciting and at the same time nerve racking. Money raised goes to a cause close to me, so it’s something to look forward to next year.
I’ll be holding Children’s art workshops for the Spring school holidays in Sydney. I found a great location near the city and now am working on getting the best equipment for my group to have fun with!
On my list of “to-dos” are 4 exhibitions I have to prepare for in August. I haven’t exhibited at these shows before, so it will be nice to try the new venues. Framing orders in – check! Look to the side of this page, to see full listings of shows.
Put some final touches to the below works and the week has flown by!
