Here are some of the paintings I have been doing during this period of isolation. The first painting which is titled “My Favourite Blue Glass”, won equal first prize for the Newcastle and Lake Macquarie Art Society still life challenge. That was very exciting.
All of the above paintings are for sale and will be posted on my Art For Sale page. Just visit my website.
The Newcastle and Lake Macquarie Art Society will be holding an exhibition at Belmont Citi Centre starting on Monday 28th and going for two weeks. The exhibition will be set up from 9am until 5pm each day.
These are my four paintings which will be on exhibit and there’s lots of other artists work for sale as well. Come and grab a bargain in time for xmas!
Here’s something I have been enjoying recently, whilst painting in my studio – “Talking with Painters – the Podcast” where Maria Stoljar talks with Australian artists about their lives and art.
Painting can be quite a solitary pastime and a lot of us artists have music or the radio playing in the background, but now we have another very enlightening choice – the podcast. Maria has visited many of Australia’s premier artists in their studios and talks to them about their early life and what may have influenced them to take up art. Also they chat about their current works, any upcoming exhibitions they have and also any setbacks they faced and how they overcame them.
Its easy to find the podcasts (over 76 episodes have been recorded), just download the Podcast App and then search for Talking with Painters by Maria Stoljar. You can also go to the website http://www.talkingwithpainters.com
Coming up soon is an art exhibition in which I will have two of my favourite paintings for sale. (see photos below). They can be seen along with many other original art works painted by the Newcastle Art Society artists at The Swansea Centre, First Floor Mezzanine, 228 Pacific Hwy, Swansea. The exhibition is from 9th June until 5th August and is open 7 days from 10am until 3pm, with lots of free parking behind the centre.
