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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
For the month of August, to coincide with my SALA exhibition, I have been the artist in residence at Wild Saffron in Clare.
It’s been a great time to get some painting done, talk to people about what I do and also enjoy their fabulous food!
