With the new year came some good news . Two paintings sold at the Victor Harbor Rotary Art Show. I was very pleased that these little ‘mono-triptych’s ( perhaps I have invented a new term??) were appreciated by someone and snapped up at the opening.
Better still , for the second time in three years I won the ‘Viewers Choice’ Award at the City of Marion Art exhibition from 150 other entrants. The piece was “Tree Life, Belair” 1.2 metres tall and 500mm wide, and one of my ‘hidden creature’ style of paintings. These do seem to be popular with viewers. However it didn’t sell. I did ask more than I usually do on advice from other artists so may have priced myself out of a sale. Now it has been ear marked for the Goolwa Rotary Show coming up mid March.
I am currently working on another ‘hidden creature’ painting to go with ‘Tree Life, Belair’. This one is of the local Goolwa environment and features water birds.
The Marion Art Group has reconvened and is already shaping up for an interesting year. I have been busy producing eleven small paintings for our first exhibition of the year at Colonnades Shopping Centre starting on Monday March 7. I sold quite well at the Colonnades exhibition last year so hope for a repeat this year.
Happy reading and viewing to my supporters who regularly log into this blog.
