Doug Wright's show at SALT

Doug's earlier works and current encaustic paintings, some quite small to large ones, was a good variety and range of works. We liked the one in the window the most.

Spring paintings

Painted these two last week, I am trying out if the frames works in my paintings. I liked the blue one, thought it was whimsical.

Window Frames @ Fringe Festival Melbourne 2010

This painting "beguiled" has been entered into the Fringe Festival Melbourne 2010, for the art competition "Window Frames" of the Sydney Road Brunswick Association.
I am thrilled that it got through. It was one of my strongest work done in 2008.

2010 Dawn's newest painting

One of Dawn's latest paintings for 2010, hot off the press and sold already. Some of Dawn's 2010 paintings in her 3 recent exhibitions are now on her website,

Emma Blee-"Closer to Home" art exhibition

Today's opening of Emma Blee's art exhibition at Space 22, was a colourful "memory patches" of paper dyed with coloured in an glued on canvas or boards. These artworks were made with paper in the another use of paper like Debbie Lloyds' previous exhibition. Everyone seems to be making paper things in Ballarat. I think this vein of paper works is more crafty than the usual paintings that I envisaged in an art show, but today different mediums are explored and used to good advantage.

Fiona Andrew's Exhibition

On Tuesday night, we went to the opening of Fiona Andrews' art exhibition at RADMAC gallery. Steve Monaghetti opened her exhibition. Fiona's painting of Steve was spot-on. We liked her swan with chicks painting too. The style was different to her usual ones and this one was very refreshing.
