Artists' Diary Week 16

On Monday we returned home from our rather busy weekend.
Not a very productive afternoon.

Tuesday had some family business to attend to, helping out the in-laws with my man removing a very heavy slow combustion fireplace for them. Smiles all round because it is being handed onto our son and his family. The afternoon I headed out to Mellissas' to collect some of her work and collect some unsold paintings from Singleton.

Wednesday packed the car in readiness to head off to the courier the next day.

Thursday was busy, busy, busy. Headed out with my first stop in Castle Hill for my father then headed up to Hornsby to drop off work for three shows and collect unsold work for myself and two other artists. Afterwards headed to The Art Scene to collect the final painting for my exhibition.

Friday taught my afternoon class at the RAS and delight in the progress of my students. They are a lovely bunch.

 'Near Armidale' 1/2 sheet demo

Saturday went to Katoomba to the opening of Herman Pekels' exhibition at The Lost Bear Gallery. It is a wonderful show with some masterful pieces.
Went for a walk out to Echo Point, took a few photos then jumped into the car to thaw out. There was still snow on the shadow side of hills and gullies! 

Yesterday polished all the glass and cleaned the frames (just making sure all is ready) before packing the car and delivering my work to Breathing Colours Gallery at Balmain.

26 paintings carefully stacked. Always a little scary loading a lot of paintings!
After unloading and organizing the hanging we had a much deserved dinner at the Cat & Fiddle pub on the next corner. Can recommend it, the food was outstanding! 

A big week coming up with the opening of my exhibition on Saturday afternoon, all welcome!

Happy Painting!
