Spent the day installing new exhibition at Rosebed St. Gallery – here are some gallery shots – apologies for the reflections on the glass. My sculptures and David’s drawings work well together in this space.
I must admit I had been feeling a little raw and exposed – out on a limb – but fantastic news this afternoon I have sold a substantial number of works from my show – sheer bliss – the feeling is fantastic. I had purchased a swag of new paper on thursday and had been thinking maybe I was being a bit extravagant but all good now. Here is another drawing from life drawing on thursday that I have coloured up a bit with watercolour pencils. A4 strathmore with biro and watercolour pencils.
Another trip to Noosa Gallery today to meet the press – a television programme called ‘the great south-east’ was doing an article on the gallery and they were kind enough to invite me along – as my work is currently in the gallery – programme airs in June. Maybe my stars are beginning to line up 🙂
Yesterday I was lucky enough to sit uninterrupted for a couple of hours waiting for David who was having a MRI (nothing life threatening – I hope). I started reading then pulled out my sketchbook. These could be some new caryatids developing – I need to get some new sculptures finished in the next few weeks for another adventure – hopefully I will have more to report on this front in the coming months. biro in A5 sketchbook
I took my exhibition brochure to the printers last week but when they did a trial print the blacks were all different colours – I have spent some time trying to amend the problem between a number of different software packages – finally (many hours later and much cursing) the problem is all but fixed and we are going to print. Not much left to do now – yesterday I also picked up all the drawings from framers – looking good! The brochure is A4 (landscape) and folds down the middle.
