SALA festival starts in a couple of weeks and runs for the month of August.
I am opening my studio for the first time to the general public as part of the festivals "Open Studios" which is given extra promotion for the weekend of 10/11 August. I will be open each Friday, Saturday and Sunday for the whole month 10am - 4pm.  I just continue to paint during that time and hopefully people will come and visit and take a look at what I do. There are about a hundred open studios right across the state of South Australia where artists open their working place for all to see. More than 4900 Artists exhibit in more than 500 venues in Galleries, Cafes, Restaurants, Corporate places during the month. Art@Goolwa has an exhibition as part of the festival and I will have 5 paintings there.
I am currently working on some new paintings inspired by the area I live in - the end of the Murray river where it meets the ocean and the start of the "Coorong" a National park and Lagoon ecosystem. It was the first to join the Ramsar Convention which is a worldwide organisation for the conservation of wetlands.The Coorong is a sanctuary for not just Australian waterbirds but also the migratory birds too. I am not sure my studio filled with African animals and florals is right for this festival so back to the brushes and create those new paintings!
