Seems life has taken over again and I'm finding little time to do anything but try to keep up. Lots of new and exciting things happening. I won't bore you with full details for now except to share that "OMG I BOUGHT A HOUSE !". More on that later.. once I get my head around the fact that OMG.. I actually bought a house!!! My house.. a beautiful home of our own! How unbelievably amazing is that!
And... I was invited by Rebecca at Gemelli Estate to show and promote my art in the "Wine & Art Trail" which is run during June as part of the Hunter Valley Food & Wine Month. This is very exciting.. I even have my name and title "local Singleton artist" in print, so I guess that makes it official now :) And a banner with my art on it... still pinching myself! A thousand thank you's to Rebecca at Gemelli for her support and belief. The exhibition is aptly named Grow & Believe and runs right through June...
Painting time has been delegated to 'fit in around everything else'. Have to say though I'm really happy with the strokes I made and feel like I've finally got this art thing happnin :) Head over to my gallery for more details if you like.
...and drum roll!!! My personal all time favourite!!! Love love love it.
And I have sold these which is mind blowingly awesome, one of which is heading to the US and another to England to remind the owner of her sunny days in Australia... how good is that!!!
This week I created my very first range of prints. They are 'Digitally designed from my original acrylic on canvas artworks, printed using archival inks and individually signed'. I've been wanting to try this creative process for a while and am excited to see how they are received and hopefully look at improving and expanding my range down the track.
Available at Gemelli Estate or just email me if you like.
So between my house purchase, my exhibition and of course (for me) the inevitable roller coaster ride of excitement and fear, faith and self doubt, and a good healthy dose of anxiety thrown in just for good measure.. my brain has not been a great place to hang out of late : ) but we're hanging in there and learning to get along again! Because amidst all of that I'm well aware that I'm blessed in so many ways and I can't wait to create our new home with my boys.. I'll try to remember to take pics so I can share all the fun along the way.
Grow and believe.
"Art has given me so much. If I can pass it on and inspire even one other person to live their own creative passions then I'm a very happy artist indeed "
