Artists Diary Week 20

Wow, what a week, there were exhibition openings, deliveries,demonstrations, workshop tutoring and prizes to accept with a couple of sales along the way! 

Finished some work which was begun on Sunday and completed another.
'Calm Waters' Heading to Breathing Colours Gallery, Balmain on Sunday.

Entered the Springwood Artfest for the first time and was absolutely gobsmacked to take out the Rose Lindsey Award for Best in Show!
'Big Reds' Sold too!

Did a watercolour demonstration at the Southern Cross Art Society Tuesday night, thought the numbers would be down because the weather was appalling but there were plenty there to watch and listen. A very enthusiastic and welcoming group. 
'Broome Boatyard'

Friday train sketching.

Attended the official opening at Springwood on Friday night, excellent food, wine and wonderful music along with a panel discussion on the Archibald event. An entertaining evening.

Also received a call to say I had won the watercolour prize in Kiama!
'The Boatyard'

There does seem to be a bit of a boat theme happening here.

Saturday afternoon was a another opening at Penrith where two prizes came my way, Best Australian Landscape and Best Drawing.

Sunday I tutored a workshop for the Shire Art Society at Caringbah. Again a great group and I pushed them right out of their comfort zone but they responded beautifully producing some wonderful watercolours.
'Dookie Farmsheds' 


Another full week ahead, seems to be that time of year, all the spring shows are now coming up.
