Go With the Flow

Time now needed to make the final choices for paintings to include in my very first solo wall artist exhibition. I am pleased that I have more than enough completed and framed so I can be selective. The new exhibition at Art@Goolwa also opens first week of May and I need 5 works to keep back for this.
Whilst this has been a very intense time to be ready I am so pleased to have had this goal as I can see from the results that being focused and putting in so many brush miles over the last six months has really been worthwhile. I will however look forward to painting just for fun with no commitments for a short while. Next big event for me will be in August when the SALA (South Australian Living Artist) festival runs for the month right across the State. I have registered as an Open Studio which means my studio will be open to the public Friday thru Sunday. I am having the boat shed at the rear of our property refitted as a new studio and this will triple my working and hanging space. Exciting times ahead!

  1. So much going on a some wonderful new ventures for you. I don't know how anyone manages to do a one woman exhibition. All that painting and framing! Well I hope it is a fantastic success. The Open Studio sounds a great idea and also your new studio space. Oh you are going to have a fun arty 2013

    1. Its amazing when you apply yourself how much you can achieve - art being no different than anything in life. I always give it my all and never be half hearted

  2. I'm really pleased for you Lorraine. Good Luck with the Exhibition and your new Open Studio. The hard work was definitely worth the effort as it got you here to this point. I feel very priviledged to have watched your talent flourish and bring you so much success. I have no doubt this will be one of many solo exhibitions which your artwork truely deserves. :-)

    1. Thanks Terry, the studio space has been on my mind for some time. We never had a boat but my husband had it full of all his interests - till now!

    1. The announcement was put together by the hotel gallery person and she said to email her some images. I was happy too that mine went so well with the blue from the glass artist
