Paint and Plonk Cheeky Hen’s Celebration

Today we were in Adelaide for a private party to celebrate Jade’s upcoming wedding with a Hens High Tea and Paint & Plonk. As usual we used Derivan Matisse artist quality inks with step-by-step tutorials.

The paintings selected were a hen and The Statue of David for something a little bit cheeky. There is plenty of room for interpretation which made for some quirky David paintings.

What a fun group. You all did amazing work.

Surprise Paint and Plonk Hen’s Celebration

It was a cold and wet spring day here in Clare but at Eldredge Wines we had the heaters on keeping us warm and fantastic views with a few visiting kangaroos. The wine was flowing with delicious food and lots of fun and laughs.

Today was a surprise Paint & Plonk event for Liz with a gorgeous bunch of ladies visiting for the day.

We started with peacocks for the first painting and then moved onto Liz’s dog Minx.

Paint and Plonk at Sevenhill Hotel

What a fantastic day we had at the Sevenhill Hotel in their cellar (surrounded by Clare Valley wine) painting flowers and magpies for our spring themed Paint and Plonk.

Step by step tutorials were provided by and as always we used artist quality Derivan Matisse Acrylic Inks.

Everyone enjoyed drinks and fantastic food with their painting to help the creativity flow.

Derivan Open Day

We’ve had a fantastic time travelling to Sydney so I could be a part of the Derivan Open Day as one of the demonstrating artists. It was a wonderful opportunity to meet the staff, other artists and visitors.PaintingMeg and Eliza

It’s nice to know that the products I love so much are not only Australian made and owned but use environmentally friendly practices when making their products

I even had a little bit of time to catch up with Picasso!Hanging with Picasso

A Love Affair of all things Fowl

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.

Meet the Maker Market

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.

Market Research … surely

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.
