We’re nearly in May!

Taking the chance on this rainy day (it did stop for a couple of hours!) to post about my week!

Picked up my work from the Drummoyne Art Show on the weekend. I was fortunate to sell my small painting of the QVB.

I managed to whip out my brushes for a spot of painting. I completed the following pieces:

Street scene of Queen Victoria statue

The Meeting Point

Outdoor cafe scene in watercolor

Cafes on the Quay

Painting of Luna Park rides in Sydney

The Fair

Next show is at the Winmalee Artfest on the first weekend of May. I can’t believe we are in May already. I will be delivering my work next Monday. I quite enjoyed visiting this show last year!

nice surprises

Last Saturday, I navigated myself down to the Bankstown Arts Centre to deliver my work for the ‘Art of Sydney’ awards, that will be held later this month.

It’s my first time in the show and to be honest, I was (very!) nervous about being accepted by the judge/s.

I was very pleased when the call on Sunday gave me the good news that, yes I will be hung! YAY!

Tuesday night came along and so did a missed call on my phone. Calling back, hoping there hadn’t been any mistakes…I was advised that I was awarded a ‘Highly Commended’ for Watercolour and was a finalist in the 9 x 5 ” section.  Double YAY!

Other members of my Nepean group also received awards, which was great news 🙂

These are the paintings mentioned…

Painting of Sydney Harbor Bridge

Finalist in the 9 x 5″ section – Sydney Harbour Bridge

I continued painting flowers this week. Slow and careful work in humid heat! Not a good mix, the paint drying like that! I loved the colours of my hydrangea from my back garden, that I really felt like painting and tackling the subject. You should always follow those inclinations 🙂

This is my finished painting and am loving how my art is looking on my Redbubble store…

I also tried to go and get in some plein air practice this week. Down by the bay, it proved to be very windy on both days I tried. First time was worse than the last, when everything was being blown away. I had to hold onto everything!

Now as the heat subsides, and the storm rolls over, I concept new work for the coming week 🙂

Until then,
