Week One of my Ongoing Artists Diary

Welcome to my new blog. I am new to all of this so here I go!

I thought this would be a good idea because I often feel I am not really achieving very much but by documenting my art practice by way of a diary might help me to understand just where my life disappears to!

This week has been huge. It started with two days of framing paintings to ready for exhibitions. I have them stacked ready to go to seven different shows. On Wednesday I headed off  to Melbourne to meet up with my courier, Do Noble who does all my deliveries in Victoria. I needed to swap some older work for some more recent paintings for upcoming shows in Melbourne. He is a very well organised gentleman and if you need someone I recommend him to you. Noble Couriers can be contacted on 0418175307.

I also visited Hampton Art Supplies at Hampton. They were generous enough to honour a voucher I won at the Bayside Rotary Art Show even though they were new owners and were unaware of the sponsorship of the previous owners. It was very much appreciated!

It was then out to Yarram in Gippsland where I was invited to judge the local Rotary Art Show. This was extremely difficult especially in a couple of categories where all entrants were worthy of an award. I also had a wall of my own work on view and for sale.

After leaving Yarram we headed to Bright where I also have some paintings in the Bright Autumn Exhibiton. I have exhibited here for a number of years and was amazed at the size and quality of this show. Well worth a visit.

From Bright we headed home to Castlereagh to see family who are visiting from Merriwa. 

Tomorrow I will be heading to the studio to start on some new work.
