Here's our little shop at The Emporium titled Fancy That. Remember to pop in some time and say hello.
Here’s our little shop at The Emporium titled Fancy That. Remember to pop in some time and say hello.

Since I last posted an exciting venture has come my way. I’m now a member of a little shop in The Emporium which those of us from Newcastle would know as the old David Jones building . As part of  Renew Newcastle. The Emporium is not only a step back in time, it allows the people of Newcastle to admire and purchase a diverse selection of unique art made by locals. The shop I have been lucky enough to exhibit my creations in is called Fancy That. So next time you’re out and about in the Newcastle mall come and say hello to one of our friendly artisans. At present I’m there Wednesday mornings. I’ll keep you posted if this changes.

Here is the latest instalment of my tapestry. Not long to go now!

My tapestry is just about finished thanks to my enforced though enjoyable sitting of the Fancy That shop once a week. As far as other projects are going I’m still painting regularly and have plans for more lino cuts in the future. At the  moment I’m making hay while the sun shines and accepting any work that comes my way from my previous occupation in science. Because we all know that as much as we love the art world there is just not much money in it for most of us. I’m happy to say though that this won’t stop me creating.

Another important piece of news is that this weekend is the Lake Macquarie Art Bazaar. I’ll be there with a small selection of original art and a huge selection of inkjet prints. For those out there that begin following my blog or like my Facebook page between now and Sunday the 31st May come to the Art Bazaar in the beautiful grounds of the Lake Macquarie Art Gallery and introduce yourself and I’ll give you a free inkjet print.

So to wrap up this post now I’m going to add some pics of the latest paintings I’ve been working on. They are certainly not finished but they do have history. They were exhibited at my exhibition at The Project Space earlier this year as abstracts. Well they’re not anymore. I think they’re an improvement. Do you?
