Exhibition - Cafe13 LORN, MAITLAND

I will be having an exhibiton of my art at CAFE 13 at Lorn ( just over the Belmore Bridge at Maitland )
for the month of May.
I will also be in Japan for two weeks - so there just could be an oriental theme upon my return?
Wish me luck!

Hot off the Easel - Nude Back

This is another painting that I had started some time back but never had the chance to finish so I really felt compelled to get in and do it this weekend.
I actually like to raw- ness of the colour and texture of this one - I can hear my art teacher yelling at me that I have not "blended" properly...but I guess, for this one, I didnt want to.
I wanted to keep it slightly rough and just play with the shadow and textures...after all art is also about experimentation isnt it?

Hot off the Easel - Good Friday "TULIPS"

Finally, I have had time to finish a painting!
Its Good Friday and I have spent many hours happily painting in my "studio" - I had almost forgotten how much joy it is for me to sit quietly in there and just concentrate on painting.
I love the play of light in this painting and the angle of the tulips coming from the side - something a bit different.
Have a Happy Easter everyone!
