First time exhibiting at the Port Adelaide Rotary Art Show had its rewards! Sold two out of three and ………’Tree Life Belair’ not only sold but was obviously popular with the public to be given it’s second Peoples Choice award. This means a lot to me as the Port Adelaide Rotary Art Show is a fairly prestigious art exhibition which has been going for thirty years. A feather in my cap!! The painting is large, it is light filled, it is quirky and draws people to it to look more closely. The camouflaged animals idea is still selling. This year I will look for a different approach to this idea to keep me interested in the concept.
Note that ‘Tree Life Belair’ was developed from a small study of the tree which sold at Gallery ‘M’, shown in the last Post.
Also sold is a Painting left over from the Maxwell’s Solo exhibition three years ago. Sometimes persistence pays off with paintings that we feel are good enough to sell.
Now about to drop off three paintings to the Victor Harbor Art Show. All of old buildings from the Fleurieu Peninsular rendered in sepia tones. It will be interesting to see if they sell. If not then they are ideal for the Goolwa Rotary show coming up in March.
Marion Art Group restarts for the year on January 16. Looking forward to getting back with the group and having a good year together.
