We have settled well into our lovely new home and I have been painting almost every day in my studio getting ready for my next exhibition . " COASTAL INSPIRATIONS" at the Minnamurra Cafe Gallery which will start on the 22nd August running for 2 months . The opening night is 26th August between 5.30 and 7.30 pm . If you are in the area do drop in it would be lovely to see you there. As this is a long exhibition I will continue to paint so that I can replace with new paintings as they sell . I was quite pleased with this painting 'SEA CHANGE' that I am saving for the exhibition . Another painting completed recently was my entry for the Meroogal Women's Art Prize . I am hoping that it will be accepted and will post a photo later to let you know how I went in the competition .
Have a lovely day ..

It certainly has been a busy time in the Karas household with five family birthdays in July . We had an extra birthday to celebrate this year with our Ruby Rose turning one . I can't believe how fast she has grown and becoming such a lovely little girl.
This painting is one that I have completed for the Minnamurra exhibition called ' Rockpool' . It is a painting looking towards Kiama harbour with a grandfather and grandchild exploring the rockpools in the foregound. I am really getting into the painting now with the deadline looming and such a lot more to be done ..weeks flying by too fast ..I still like to keep up with the plein air group and get out into the sunshine and paint . Also working on another painting for an art prize . I have an interesting story to tell about that one but will save that for later .

I completed this painting of Kiama harbour at dusk . I am fascinated by how strong the light can be just before the sun drops behind the mountains . I almost passed on visiting the harbour thinking that it was too late in the day but it was simply delightful and I was so glad to be there.
Apologies to all of my 70 wonderful followers . There seems to have been a malfunction and you can't be seen on my blog . Please know that I appreciate you all for following and your interest in my artworks . In the meantime I will try to work out what the problem is .
