Well, sort of. You may remember I donated one of my paintings, a watercolour entitled “Reach” to the Young Variety Heart Art Show. While I wasn’t able to attend on the night, I was pleased to be able to support the charity with my donation.
Yesterday, a friend of mine mentioned she had seen a painting that looked very much like one of mine in the free newspaper given out on trains, MX. She gave me a copy, and Lo and Behold, it was my painting:
I’m not mentioned by name, but that is definitely my painting “Reach”. Even though it’s only a free newspaper, I was thrilled to see my painting there! I’m also really happy that my style is distinctive enough for someone to be able to tell it’s one of my paintings even though my name isn’t on it.
It’s been busy busy busy for me lately, and it looks to be a great year for art!
I thought I’d share with you all a few upcoming events I’m involved in.
Firstly, I’m excited to announce that I’m going to be a part of an exhibition at the Art Factory gallery in Merivale St, South Brisbane. The exhibition is called “Abundance”, and it will feature an abundance of different styles of art – 10 artists in total are featuring their work.
Many thanks to Michelle from Art Salon for all her hard work in organising this exhibition.
We’ll be having our opening night on Friday the 19th of March from 6pm till 9pm, and then offering morning tea on Sunday the 21st.
Last year I was happy to be able to support Variety by donating a painting to their Heart Art Show. I’m delighted to be able to donate another painting this year – although I’m a bit disappointed the show is going to be on at the same time as our Abundance exhibition, so I won’t be able to go along. I’m hoping my painting will make some money for charity though!
My third exciting upcoming event is a talk about my art and technique for the Springfield Lakes Art Group this Saturday. Public speaking is not my forte so I’m slightly terrified, but I hope it will help me to grow as an artist and a person. I’ll try to write a post afterwards and let you all know how it went!
