Woohoo! I made a sale

It’s a wonderful feeling to wake up in the morning, start up the computer and be greeted by an email from RB titled “You’ve made a sale”. So to the anonymous buyer in the UK who bought 3 copies of my Leen Van Der Mark Tulip poster I say THANK YOU, You’ve made my day. I hope you enjoy them.

I also thank those who ordered my calendars and a tote bag;


Stolen Work

We’ve all heard about it and many of us have experienced it first hand like I have. Pinterest is an annoying bug bear but so far they removed everything of mine that I’ve asked them to. I’ve placed a copyright notice on my RB profile and in the short bio which can be seen when the description option is chosen and I’ve updated this to specifically mention Pinterest but it doesn’t make a difference and it probably never will.

I’ve find my work on an Indian dating site that scraped images from all over. They too responded and did as asked. So did the Slovenian chat site once I used Google Translate so that I could locate the appropriate option for the Contact Us bit.

Now on my latest check I’ve found 2 flower images in Pinterest, several of my Classi…

A new personal best - 5 features within 24 hrs

Wow what a surprise to logon on and find that my fractal design work has achieved 5 features in one day. What is even more surprising is that I only got the software (Ultra Fractal) a week ago and before that had never attempted fractals before. So to get so many features so quickly was beyond my wildest dreams. There is some truly wonderful fractal art on RedBubble and I hope to learn some of their secrets as I practice my new found addiction.


Cheers

Postcards from Home - March 2011 Challenge

The Challenge

We’ve all seen those cheap & tacky postcards & t-shirts aimed at the hapless tourist. They all look the same no matter where you are and none of them do the location justice. And even all that information from the tourist information seems to sound the same after a while. Well here’s your chance to fix that.

Design your own postcard. It can be a photograph, a t-shirt, or a written piece.It can be a beautifully inspiring piece of travel writing that will transport the reader to another place with carefully crafted imagery. It can be a piece of bush poetry that speaks to the heart of our culture. It can be a stunning image overlaid with some original verse.

Entry Rules

Entries should be between 10 & 200 words in length.

Any photographs/t-shirts submitted without ov…

River Life - Photographic Exhibition

October brings with it not only the promise of lengthening days and glorious sunshine without the stifling heat, it also brings the River Life photographic exhibition. Held over the October long weekend (Oct 2 – 4) at the Goolwa Regatta Yacht Club in South Australia this exhibition is part of the Goolwa Alive festival being staged over the long weekend. All works are available for sale including my entry.

Goolwa sits at the mouth of the Murray River and is home to many iconic South Australian favourites such as the Cockle Train, PS Oscar W (a paddle steamer) and the gateway to the Coorong. River life dominates the history of this town with paddlesteamers carrying goods inland along the Murray. Today river life continues as this popular tourist destination is home to the Wooden Boat…

My Next Exhibition (July 17-29 2010)

Earlier this year I entered my first images into the inaugural Rotary Photgraphic Art Exhibition @ Millicent. Now it’s time to have another go and see whether I can do better than a Merit Award.

So the last few weeks have seen me busily choosing and organising a couple of prints to enter into the Picture This 2010 photographic exhibition and acquisitional competition. Run by Brunswick Street Gallery (surprisingly in Brunswick Street) in Fitzroy, Melbourne the exhibition will be on display from July 17 – 29. So if you’re in the region, why not pop on down to check it out. You never know you might even find me there if I can get a cheap flight.

Just in case you can’t make it to Melbourne then here are the two images that I’ve entered into the exhibition. Pleas…

The journey continues - Discover Australia June 2010

Back in March 2010, Discover Australia was launched. The preparation was at times a nightmare as we, the editorial team, struggled with putting together a magazine with more than our fair share of difficulties. Ask any fledging publisher and they will tell you how difficult it is to launch a new magazine onto the market; so imagine trying to do it when the editorial team are spread across 4 states, have a mixture of hardware and software (and little in common), and have no money to spend on the infrastructure normally required. But we did it and we all learned a lot along the way. Lessons like if you search hard enough on the Web you can pretty much find almost anything for free. So with free email account, free file server to host the magazine, some much needed sponsorship in the way of…

Another first and boy am I happy

Last Friday my husband and I drove the 412 kilometres to Millicent for the Gala Opening of the Rotary Photographic Art Exhibition. A long way to go to view a photo exhibition but not so far when it is your first exhbition. I was keen to see the works from the other entrants and to learn as much as I could from the experience.

So there I was stood in the Millicent Civic & Arts Centre with a glass of lovely Coonawarra red in one hand and the exhibition catalogue in the other listening to the announcement of the winning entries. First it is the Portrait category with 1st, 2nd and 3rd place announced. The winning portrait image is simply stunning and can be seen by all as it hangs on the display behind the announcer. A number of Merit Awards are also given before they move onto the next c…
