It has been quite some time since I have posted a journal but wanted to share some good news, apart from thanking all the lovely people who purchase my works.

I was notified on the weekend that one of my paintings ‘Blue Mountains Mist’ has been selected for the ‘Infinities of Blue’ Exhibition at NSW Parliament House, Sydney along with the Blue Mountains Artist Network. Opening 4th March 2016 3-5pm and runs until April. So very honoured to be chosen and looking forward to this memorable experience. After a broken down car, and then having to run the paintings up the hill to the selection venue I just made it on time so glad it was a happy ending ☺

My painting ‘Jellybean Pool, Blue Mountains’ received a highly commended award at The Edge Gallery ‘Summer Exhibition’ Jan 2016 – my very first commended award. After participating in other local art shows I was also happy to sell 3 paintings ‘Just Peachy’ ‘Golden Reflections’ and ‘Moments in Time’.

Talking about time, I find it difficult to open my studio, but on occasions when I do I am happy to see people follow my signs from the highway. It is very rewarding meeting new people and selling direct to the public. My ‘Light in the Darkness’ painting, ‘Peacock Feather’ along with ‘Stairway to Heaven’ and ‘Dainty Daisies’ have all left the studio for new homes recently.

Earlier this year I donated a painting ‘The Way Home’ for the ‘Refuge’ Exhibition at Everglades Historic House and Gardens in Leura and was delighted to hear it sold, Proceeds went towards a good cause. I am in the process of designing new cushions for Everglades for selection and sale in their shop along with my art deco design ’Elegance that are already there. It is a popular tourist spot and people from all over the world visit. My products eg cards, small originals, bags and scarves also sell from Profile Boutique Wentworth Falls and I am lucky and honoured to have been approached by both to have my works displayed at these lovely locations.

Sales have exceeded my expectations on Redbubble. Since my last journal, and along with cards and stickers, I have been delighted, and so grateful to have sold the following:

Taking this opportunity to say a big thank you to all those who purchase and support my art journey. It is forever encouraging and keeps me moving forward, without you, the famous Redbubble, and a ‘little hard work on my part’ my art journey would not have come this far.

Wishing you a wonderful new year and continuing enjoyment from your creative endeavours and may they bring you much joy and success. You can follow me at www.facebook.com/lindartcallaghan and find me on Instagram lindacallaghanartist.
