I felt like I needed a break from my drawings with all their intricate details, so I decided to “throw” some paint around. Good fun!
Even painted my sneakers…accidentally.
These “Ties” were the stands from the back of frames that I had removed. I kept them because I thought they might turn into interesting artworks one day.
I’m pleased with how well they turned out, considering the unusual surface and shape I painted on.
The current project I am working on with soft pastel is an Australian Rose Robin, and he’s coming along rather nicely.
Came across this really awesome mosaic artwork.
I recently self-published my first book containing my own photography and some of my favourite bible verse. These are for sale for $50ea (includes postage).
My pastel collection is starting to get rather large…and yet, I use every one of them
Here are two of my pastel bird drawings I am currently working on.
( the photos were just taken on my phone)
Australian White-Winged Blue Wren
Australian Red-Backed Wren (Female)
When I’ve finished these two, I intend to draw the male Australian Red-Backed Wren and sell the two (male+female) as a pair in matching frames. Or get them framed together in a larger single frame.
My first solo exhibition officially opened on Wednesday June 1st, at the Station Gallery in Yarragon. To promote my exhibition, the Baw Baw Arts Alliance featured my story in their bimonthly newsletter on page 5.
