Shows and More Shows

Wow August is a long month with five weekends this year. Our big arts festival SALA is half way through, I have my animals paintings up at The Kensi Hotel and of course in my own little studio/gallery in Goolwa.
I have managed to paint during the weekends when my studio is open for visitors and am mostly happy with my paintings even though they were a very much stop and start process but it has been lovely talking to visitors and discussing my process with them.
At the end of the festival I will be choosing works for a solo exhibit at Bremerton Wines in Langhorne Creek where they will be from September 2nd to October 26th and I also have three paintings to be included in the Adelaide Art Society Winter exhibition which runs for three weekends finishing Sept. 13th.
I'm glad I have a big collection of framed works to go around.

This little work is inspired by one of talented Ruth Archers photographs on Paint My Photo, I used artistic licence to add, subtract and pick my own colours but I really identified with this image. This is just how I feel by the end of most painting days around 3.30pm.
