As we so very often do at the ending of a year, we review, and take stock and make plans for the coming months.
We say goodbye to old habits, close doors that no longer lead anywhere and find new paths to follow.
One of the things we have had to say goodbye to is the Swich Contemporary Art Space at the Top of Town in Ipswich. Their final exhibition “The End is Nigh” was a fabulous showcase of local artists and a fitting way to say farewell. LeAnne and Gil’s presence will be sorely missed but I wish them both the very best as they begin their next journey.
I am proud to say that my work has hung with some of the talented artists in Ipswich. On this blog I showed you some ‘in-progress’ work for that exhibition … here are the finished pieces!
“Parade of the Planets”
One of my resolutions this year is to be more regular with my blog posts. Life sort of got in the way the last few months and I lapsed. I am now fully recovered but we are still in between moving and selling our current house so my studio space has been semi-packed for a few weeks which hasn’t helped. My sketch book has seen more of me than my drawing desk.
So I haven’t got anything new to show you … yet!
I am thrilled to be able to announce that I have been invited to take part in a group exhibition in November this year!
Together with three artists, whose work I greatly admire, Tom Mason, Lyn Mason, and Glen Smith, we will be “The Image Makers” at the Petrie Terrace Gallery of The Royal Queensland Art Society.
Our work differs greatly in style and subject matter and I am really looking forward to sharing some sneak peeks with you.
I have a long list of other things I want to achieve this year.
My first challenge will be to complete something for the QT Art Awards. I have had several ideas already and this year I will be trying to buckle down so that I am not rushing at the last minute again.
So – last year ended with a whimper – let’s start the new one with a bang.
