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
The Newcastle Art Society is currently exhibiting over 100 art works by local artists at the Lake Fair Shopping Centre, Mount Hutton from 19 August to 7th September 2019.
These two paintings shown below are my artworks on exhibit. I hope you will take the time to come and have a look. You can also check out my art works for sale on my website http://www.chris-jacob.com/
Two of my paintings will be on display at the Newcastle Art Society Belmont Citi Exhibition. The exhibition will be held from Monday 29th October until Sunday 11th November. The exhibition is easy to find its right outside the Coles supermarket at Belmont Citi Centre – Macquarie St, Belmont, from 10am to 4pm.
These are the two I will be exhibiting: both framed watercolours.

I have some art equipment, which I’m not using and which is taking up valuable space in my studio. So I’m offering them for sale. All of the items are in excellent condition, have hardly been used and are for pick up only from Caves Beach NSW. If you are interested in anything you can contact me by email here: Contact
It’s been a pretty busy start so far this year, having already attended two watercolour workshops with highly acclaimed tutors, plus I’ve sold 4 paintings in the last few weeks!
