Sorry I have been absent from blogging for a little while but I have been madly catching up with painting some new works after selling so many at the ' Coastal Inspirations' exhibition . A great thing about having an exhibition is getting the chance to show my work to new customers and catch up with those who have followed my progress over the years . It's not too late to see the exhibition as it's on until 16th October . Another exhibition worth checking out is the exhibition of small Australian landscapes at the Kiama Gallery , Terralong street which opens 29th September 2011 at 5.30 pm . I was pleased to be asked by the owner Andrea Hope to exhibit a few paintings .
Well spring has sprung here in the Southern Hemisphere and I am pleased to see the cold weather fading away and the start of this lovely time of year . The trees have sprouted their new leaves , blossoms are blooming , chickens are laying , birds are chirping ..I am just about ready to pack the fire away till next year ..It certainly is nice to go for my daily walk with sunshine on my face !
To mark the start of spring I have painted this cute as a button leather bag with teddies and flowers . I couldn't resist buying it last weekend ..and couldn't wait to paint it up in the design that was in my head ..it is an original old leather bag ..about the 1920's ..a lovely small version of the gladstone bag , perhaps for the ladies due to its size and the fact that it has a money purse inside ...simply divine ..can be seen in my ebay store..
