The official opening of ‘A Love Affair of all things Fowl’ had a great turnout and the food and drinks were amazing.
This is an exhibition featuring chickens, chooks and roosters in memory of Nancy Barry, a sweet old chook and local icon.
The artworks have been created by members of The Journey Studio Art Group.
A huge thanks to Wild Saffron for hosting the exhibition and supplying the delicious food.
What a wonderful, fun group of people who came along today to my acrylic ink workshop, Coffee, Cake & Creativity, to try out Derivan Matisse inks at the Watervale General Store.
What a fantastic venue! Great atmosphere and the cakes on offer were divine.
As for the creativity, everyone did an amazing job.
A productive morning at the ‘Meet the Maker’ market.
Thanks to the Clare Valley Wine, Food & Tourism Centre for asking me to come along to do some art with my Derivan Matisse inks.
It was a pleasure meeting everyone who came by for a chat.
While visiting Brisbane I thought it would be a good time to fit in some market research by attending a drinking and painting event.
I got to hang out with my awesome brother Raphael Sabu and we had a blast.
We were not very good at following the instructions though but it was still lots of fun.
Happy birthday to Kirstie who chose to have a fantastic Paint and Plonk party yesterday at Hill River Clare Estate with her family and friends.
Everyone created two beautiful artworks using Derivan Matisse Acrylic Inks.
Lots of fun and laughter was had – what a great group!
Another fantastic Paint and Plonk at Wild Saffron using the wonderful, vibrant Derivan Matisse artist acrylic inks.
A glass of delicious Teresa Riesling on arrival from Good Catholic Girl Wines got the creative juices flowing and an amazing platter from Wild Saffron kept us going throughout the evening as everyone worked hard to make their masterpieces.
What a wonderful evening we had at the opening event of the Birds and Beasts exhibition.
Wild Saffron provided the best platter I have ever seen and Good Catholic Girl Wines provided their delicious wine.
I hope everybody enjoyed my artwork.
Thank you to everyone who came along making it such a fun night. Thanks to Stu from Blue Goanna Digital for the wonderful photos. Also, a huge thank you to Rob, my amazing husband and biggest supporter for giving the opening speech.
Relax in the cafe and take a moment to look at the current exhibition for SALA by Meg Mader, while enjoying some delicious wine from Good Catholic Girl Wines and a cheese platter provided by Wild Saffron as you create with Derivan Matisse ink.

The Clare Valley Portrait prize exhibition is open with art from the Clare Valley and surrounding regions at the Clare Valley Wine Food and Tourism Centre.
This year I have two portraits entered – “Miho” and “Willow and Gemima”. The medium is Derivan Mattise acrylic ink on Fabriano watercolour paper.
Originally from Japan, Miho is a good friend from Clare who agreed to model in her Japanese kimono. The artwork portrays her in a traditional sense, contrasting the modern lifestyle that she lives in Clare.
The second portrait entered is of my two girls Willow and Gemima at home in Spring Gully. They love playing together in the open spaces of home!
When: 28th June to 30th July 2018
Where: Clare Valley Wine Food and Tourism Centre, 8 Spring Gully Road, Clare South Australia
Derivan Mattise acrylic inks and Fabriano watercolour paper are available from The Journey Studio shop – shop.thejourneystudio.com.au.
Relax in the cellar door, looking over the beautiful view while enjoying some delicious wine and cheese platters as you create with Derivan Matisse ink.
