I was delighted to get this picture this morning – I sent this photo as a gift to a very good friend of mine, and he was kind enough to send me an email with a photo of…well…the photo. I live in Australia, he lives in Switzerland – redbubble is fantastic to have manufacturers around the globe to us to share our art with such a wide audience.
Mid to late 2010 I was beset with a nasty chest infection, that left me suffering asthma (which had been undiagnosed all my life apparently) and a prognosis of a six to eighteen month recovery. Four months later and I’m inclined to believe it will be closer to eighteen months than six!…
But I’m not going to let it stop me! A new employee in my department at work should help to reduce my excessive workload, allowing me recuperation time, and time to focus on my hobbies, in particular, my photography.
Towards the end of 2010 I was invited to take part in a hosting tutorial class, which has been a wonderful challenge that I am looking forward to seeing through over the coming weeks. It has given me the opportunity to share more in others love of art, and encourage them in a great community
I’m so excited – I picked up the prints last night for the work that I’m exhibiting (go to http://gamozzie.redbubble.com to see what I’m exhibiting). I got it all done in metallic paper, mounted on foam board. We head into the city tomorrow morning to set up the display (if you’re in Melbourne and you get the chance, please come along – 2pm-7pm Melbourne Convention Centre).
It’s the first time I’ve had any of my art up in an exhibition where lots of people I DON’T know will be seeing it (other than RB of course!).
Haven’t had a chance to upload any new work recently, because I haven’t had any to upload – opportunities for photography have been few and far between of late, but within the next 48 hours I expect this to change – my husband and I are about to head off on a road trip up the coast of Western Australia, and then spend some time in the southwest corner of Western Australia the following week.
Planned visits are a wildflower nursery, stramatolites, dolphins, treetop walks and miles and miles of coastline.
So for those who have me on their “watchlist” – “watch this space” – I expect I’ll be uploading a fair amount of work in just over a weeks time!
I’ve had a query about what “Knox SES” is – I thought I’d do a quick post on what it is and why I’m donating profits of sales of certain photos to the Knox SES.…
The SES in Australia is the State Emergency Service – depending on the branch and available services in their area, duties can extend to firefighting, search and rescue, traffic accident assistance (i.e. when someone is trapped in a car), storm damage (trees down, flooding, roof damage etc) and much more. A couple of years ago my husband decided for volunteer at our local branch (Knox). The SES is funded by government grants, corporate sponsorship, and public donations.
In the east of Melbourne there is a lovely place called Como Gardens. The people who own this property hold a couple of open days each year, where the gardens a
Well I’ve been part of redbubble for about two weeks now. Love the community that has been created. I ordered a number of my pictures as cards just over a week ago, and they arrived today. I’m so impressed with the quality of production – redbubble – you rock!
I’m very much looking forward to getting a mounted print of my shot “Demure” sometime next week.
