Back from Tassie

I am now back in the sanctuary of my beautiful studio after a very busy two weeks traveling and painting around Tasmania. The weather was simply glorious the entire time and even on the last painting day at Cradle Mountain in the Tasmanian Wilderness the weather held so we could paint but boy was it cold up there. I came back with about 11 paintings completed and some done under windy and hot conditions so not masterpieces but better than expected. It was difficult at times finding a level spot for my rusty old fishing stool and having to balance my painting on my lap with all my supplies spread out on the ground.

I came back in time to deliver paintings to Juxtapose Studios who contacted me back in December to join their agency. They have a good on line presence as well as a gallery in the east end of the city (Adelaide).
They chose 10 of my paintings to include in the gallery for a month starting this Sunday. I will attend on Sunday afternoon and look forward to chatting with clients. I am already back into painting using my Tassie experience incorporated in a new work.

  1. Impressive collection Lorraine. I can see John Lovett's influence in them especially with how you handled focal areas. So I am sure you picked up some new tips from him. Lucky you. Good Luck with the new Agency.

  4. Can't wait to see your new work using what you learned in your workshops. Your workshop paintings look great. It's must be quite daunting having to paint along with other painters. I know it would be for me.

  7. ThAnks blogger friends, at last I am caught up with everything that needed attention from me being away, family visits, openings, washing, ironing and mundane chores but my week ahead is free for me to get back in the studio.
