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.

Experimentation Day with Fluid Acrylics

I’m sure by now you all know how much I love my artist acrylic inks by Derivan Matisse as they are vibrant, come in beautiful colours and are perfect for watercolour techniques.

Today I stepped out of my comfort zone and experimented with Matisse Fluid acrylic paint. It is a very liquid-like paint with loads of pigment. For parts of this painting I used the colour straight from the bottle and for other parts I used Matisse’s MM3 Surface Tension Breaker medium to make the paint even thinner. This enabled me to use it in a way I would my inks.

I had a lot of fun with this painting and I’m looking forward to more experiments with these wonderful paints.

Birds and Beasts SALA Event

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.
