HomePage Feature - Yippeee!!!!

Wow, Just discovered my Womens Rocks in Alice Springs Australia were Featured for Australia Day and I missed seeing it!
Anyway I am very thankful to know that it was selected, thank you SO VERY MUCH, it made me very happy.
I think Oprah’s amazing trip downunder has made us Aussies so proud as we live in the most wonderful place in the world. We have everything!
As an artist I have seen the beauty and have painted so many wonderful places, we are so blessed to live here. There is something to inspire in every state, and I loved the way Oprah showed and spoke about how wonderful Australia is.
Thanks Red bubble for the Homepage, I really appreciated it.

Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery

Very happy as my painting Fun in the Sun is being shown at the Mornington Regional Gallery at present. I was chosen by Colin Johnson from 60 artists on our Paint out day in conjunction with The Master Lansdcapes on the Peninsula. The show was wonderful, with art from Streeton, Boyd, Percival and many other masters who did many fabulous works of the Mornington Peninsula.
A group of 60 artists painted in January this year at Sorrento Park, there was many different kinds of works and the day was perfect, sunny and all my family came and joined me for a picnic lunch. This show was televised for ABC Sunday Arts show.
Gee, life doesn’t get much better than this, but feel sure I will have lots more good things happen with my art and family. So happy that I can share this with all my RB frie…

Won at the Flinders Art Show and received the Taste of Wine Elgee Park Award - 2010

Very happy as I have just received an award at the Flinders Art Show 2010
Judged by Judith Chew for my entry titled ’Taste and Timing" Acrylic/collage in the
Taste of Wine Elgee Park Award.
I painted this picture especially for the wine section, and I was very happy with the results and ended up receiving $500.00 plus I sold the painting for $650.00, so it was a lovely surprise. Really encourages me to keep painting and will pay for lots more canvases and paint. Yippee!!!

Fun in the Sun

Just wanted to let my friends on Red Bubble know that I was chosen from sixty other artists at a Peninsula Paint Out Day held in Sorrento all painting the landscape, or Plein air painting, it was in conjunction with the Mornington Regional Gallery Master Landscapes exhibition, 1800s to the present for artists in the past who have painted the peninsula. Many greats, such as Boyd and Streeton. It was also televised and shown on the ABC Sunday Arts Program a few weeks ago, I appeared in the background on one of the shots (blink and you would have missed me!) The Regional Gallery will show the work for two weeks in August, so I will let everyone know abit before hand. It really was such a thrill to receive some recognition, The Judge was highly regarded artist/teacher Colin Johnson.

Big thank you to whoever brought my Peace Rose, it was so lovely to see I had made a sale, such a nice surprise. Hopefully it will be the start of lots of other lovely sales.

Christmas Wishes

To all my Red Bubble friends/family
Thank you all, for a wonderful year of sharing, caring and creating.
As most artists know that art is not just about making a pretty picture, it is SO MUCH MORE! As our heart, soul, mind and body go into creating something that will provoke some kind of response in the viewer, and becasue of what each artists puts of themselves into their work, for the creation process, this can be a wonderful experience but also quite draining. So for me I believe that the Red Bubble clan is a wonderful support system to help artists to keep creating not only for themselves but for others.
My heartfelt love and best wishes go to you all hoping that you all feel the special Christmas Spirit that is so wonderful at this time of year.
I look forward to lots more great things …
