Artists Diary Week 14 

Lots of deliveries again this week, Monday was to a major juried show. Sadly rejected *sigh* still there is next year and will probably try again. The thought of being selected is enough to continue going through the whole process again! And the staff booking in the works are always so lovely, wishing you luck etc. 

Tuesday was spent in that framing room again, almost done now for my next exhibition.

Wednesday was on the move again, up to Singleton delivering my paintings as well as fellow artists Mellissa Read Devine and Pat Latta.

Also this week spent time entering more shows in Melbourne. Nice to try different venues.

Finally managed to get some painting done on Thursday. Lovely day painting with friends and critiquing each other.
'Along Thunderbolt Way' 76x56cms

Saturday I headed to Windsor for some plein air, it was windy and cold but managed to stand in the sun on a north facing solid brick wall so stayed fairly warm. Finally packed it in when the wind started to go a bit crazy. 


Sunday headed to Wamberal for the night where we met a lovely generous couple and their family who looked after us so well! We really were spoilt. Thank you Cheryl and John Bruce, we very much appreciated your hospitality. I was there to do a watercolour workshop on Monday for the Toukley Art Society. Cheryl, who participated in the workshop proved to be a very capable artist herself! 

This community of artists to which we belong is such a welcoming and uplifting one. To me meeting new artists and friends to share and work with is such a big part of the joy of art.
