"What I did"s and Art for kids

Well I had a lot of fun at the Sydney Art Show at Darling Harbour The mini studio worked well and made me feel as if I was at home, and it was relaxing and fun to paint for the three days and a bit. Lots of lovely people stopped by for a chat.

One fellow suggested that I must have a lot of time on my hands. I politely but baffledly agreed, then when he came past again asked him what he meant. He said that I must have a lot of time on my hands if I have had time to make so many paintings. I said that’s like saying to your plumber that he must have a lot of time on his hands because he has time to plumb, or your doctor must have a lot of time on her hands because she has time to doctor... have I mentioned, as a lapsed vet, how I’m always delighted by the different connotations of “doctoring” vs “vetting”?

Here is a painting I did in my mini studio - it’s called “Rock pool”

Exhibition opening coming up soon..........

I am delighted to have been invited to hang five paintings in the (Randwick) Sydney Children's Hospital Foundation's upcoming Christmas exhibition. 
The opening will be held on Thursday Dec 8th from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm. The exhibition will run until January 23rd 2012 and a portion of all sales will flow to the Hospital Foundation to help fund their wonderful programs.

There will be works by numerous artists, including a group of us who are Friends of the National Art School, and our particular theme is, "Friends"! 

Cheers for now!
