Saturday night my little elephant was awarded 2nd prize in oils at Tea Tree Gully Art Show.
I didn't have time to paint until Thursday morning when I did three small oils
all approx 12cm x 18cm .....
The Blacksmith - oil on canvas sheet
Child study - oil on mat board (unprimed)
Head of a woman - oil on primed MDF board
Then yesterday morning I tried a watercolour on some paper a dear friend had given me.
Fisherman - watercolour on Blue Lake handmade toned paper from Mt.Gambier. approx 30cm x 40cm
My small terra cotta had been accorded, what some artist friends regard as the ultimate accolade, a People's Choice Award.
Winston in the garden - terra cotta and australian oak - approx 30cm x 20cm x 15cm
Perhaps colleagues are right - I really haven't got anything to complain about.
BTW - the watercolour portrait workshop at Art Stretchers on March 19th still has a few vacancies - contact Angela on 82122711 for details.
