Wow, what a hectic couple of months this has been ! The relative luxury of just painting, for all the pressures of exhibition deadlines, is a stark contrast to getting those exhibitions in front of the people. I love both parts, and often it happens like this, with months of quiet, then a flurry of appearances. One day I’ll write about how to become an “overnight success” which of course doesn’t happen. It’s mainly about constant attention to the job at hand, and taking up opportunities when they arise rather than being miraculously “discovered”, effortlessly.(One day I’ll write about the effortlessness of creating, when you are making things from your heart… but that’s a different story.)
So where in the world can you see me or my work at the moment?
NSW: Condobolin – family private view of huge six month painting project called “Woolshed on the Lachlan”. Forty-eight paintings of the woolshed and other buildings and machinery at “Gulgo”, Condobolin. Soon the family will have decided which paintings they are keeping and then I’ll post them on this website and exhibit them elsewhere.
