"Impressions of Paris" exhibition update 21/08/14

Update from the opening on Sunday 17th August 2014

After some very heavy rain overnight, the sun came out shining & warm just in time for the midday opening of the exhibition. It was a wonderful afternoon with friends & one of my daughters, Caitlin, coming along to cheer me on. Sales were really good too, including a Redbubble pillow, so a very exciting day!

It has been a great weekend too – I had one of my paintings accepted for hanging in the Warringah Art Exhibition & sold the painting yesterday to a very lovely man who visited the exhibition on the last day. I was able to meet him at the close of the exhibition to give him the painting “Walking Near the Louvre” & have a chat.

Workshop with Mignon Parker

Last Sunday I participated in a workshop with Northern Beaches artist Mignon Parker and had a great time doing a floral still life with a lively group. Mignon’s website is www.mignonparker.com

We started with a canvas primed in black gesso & had a huge bunch of Australian native flowers – grevillea, banksia, gumnuts & gum blossoms to paint in acrylic, as well as an assortment of cups, teapots & fruit.

I also took along my pastels and a full sheet of black MiTientes Tex paper.


the pastel version

Both could probably do with some more work, although for now I’m just happy with how they came out and painting something different.

Woohoo - sales!

My internet and home phone have finally been reconnected after almost a week offline, and then I received the messages that I had made some sales!

Thank you very much to the mystery buyers of the following artwork – you have made my day!
