Another DUST swap…

Friday, November 12th, 2010

I just love participating in DUST swaps!  I was very slack with my partner this month though, just like I have been with this blog and with lots of other things – I’ve been so busy lately!  I didn’t forget her though, and I hope the set of wearable art jewellery I sent her made up for the slight lateness.

My swap partner was Carol from Neca’s Nic Nacs, and she definitely looked after me!  She sent a lovely set of note cards, some Christmas ornaments, and my favourite, a gorgeous knitted hat.  I’m going to have to wait a while before I can wear it though – we’re moving into the warm, humid, summery weather here in Queensland.

Many thanks to Carol for being so patient with me!  Please check out her shop, as she has some lovely goodies there!

Summer Salon

Friday, November 12th, 2010

Last weekend I was lucky enough to be one of five artists participating in an exhibition at the Richard Randall Studio Gallery at Mt Coot-tha Botanic gardens. While I wasn’t able to sell any paintings, I met lots of lovely people and sold some of my wearable art pendants.

On the second day of our exhibition, we did some artist demonstrations.  It was great to be able to spend a whole day painting without distractions.  I painted outside for a while watched over by a curious bearded dragon who seemed to be posting for a painting.

As always, I was very inspired by the work of the other exhibiting artists, which I think is the best thing about exhibiting as a group.

Many thanks to those who stopped by to have a look at our paintings!
