Busy Weekend

This weekend we will be having a stall at Joondalup upmarket, Friday night 6 - 9 pm if you are in the area its on Central Walk, between Reid Prom and Boa's Ave, Joondalup. This is the first time In this locality and we will be seeing new customers. Should be fun, I am sure it will have a nice atmosphere.

Saturday I will be off to exhibit at Ruth Lawford's Open day at her home in Whitfield Road, Toodyay. Saves me reloading the car. I do love to get out to the country and there is a lovely selection of fellow artisans exhibiting so will be lots of fun. The hours are between 10am and 3pm.

Have a great weekend

Art of John Davis

The use of sticks, a fabric stuffed and painted in asphalt, stitched, what imagination. John Davis died in the 1990's, what a loss to us.....
I was blown away with the distinctive formalist style of Australian Artist John Davis, his use of organic materials, his sensitivity to elemental forces and his connection to the ecological landscape an artist before his time. enjoy....
This wonderful exhibition was on at the Ian Potter Centre in Federation Square, was so worth the visit. I forgo the Tim Burton exhibition to see this, wonderful.
I am multi tasking at the moment, I am making Teesha Moore style journals, and painting the covers only, leaving the rest for the customer to finish with visual samples on cover. So while waiting for the paint to dry I am doing my blog. smart aye.......

Federation Square - Melbourne

Now I have heard people say that they think that Federation Square ugly, I have to disagree, I found it such an interesting square, more so than a lot of the other squares around, not your usual buildings, straight up and all glass I find so boring lacking any creativity. Federation square was buzzing with people, so much going on. Such interesting art and exhibitions, it was here that the Tim Burton exhibition was drawing big crowds waiting patiently in orderly manner.Places for one to sit and admire the angles of steel structure showing through the glass. interactive hobs with moving art. Across the road the iconic Flinders Street train station, you get off and you are in the shopping precinct. Just look at those beautiful row on bright blue bicycles, you put in your coins and a bike pops out for you to go explore this lovely city. How cool is that?
