Dawn was the guest speaker at the launch of the Able Art exhibition at the Gallery of Ballarat.
She was talking about the art and disablitilty on the day of the International year of the Disability, and about her guest artist's role at the workshop for the Ballarat and Inagawa, sister cities art exchange project. It was a pleasant night with the culmination of the exhibition returning to Ballarat.

Dawn had a most wonderful interview with Dr Caroline Ellison from Flinders University who is doing a research on how disability artists go about their creative work. She thought that we were the best example of an artist and mentor couple she has ever met around the world. We were so very happy to be talking to her and hope to cultivate a special relationship with her.

This is the first day of painting, has 3 layers, background, glowing orangy colour, and laying down some patterns might be useful. Decided to have something hidden in the centre.
In the past, after "beguiled", I was stymied about the middle of the painting, what to have there, now I hope this works!
yiphee, Dawn received her sketchbook today, and the world tour will be coming to Melbourne for the First time, out of the States.
Dawn is excited to fill it up with drawings depicting her theme of "Hope".

Started out on a new painting on a primed canvas (1220x1524mm) in the colours that I liked which I used before in "Prancing in Paris". I feel these colours goes well with each other and I layered them in blocks and worked in the lines until they got somewhere.

This afternoon we visited the Bellarine artists community at Portalington. They meet at a gallery/studio space and have a lazy Sunday afternoon, drinking wine, talking and appraising art and listening to live music. Vim and Ash invited us to join in. It was very nice to meet new people and network.

Space22 has its last show this month, a large group exhibition. Some very interesting art there for art lovers, while Red Brick Gallery features Anne Schultz. I find a couple of interesting paintings of Anne's which I liked, otherwise, I did not get the clean colours that usually I find in oil paintings, probably the paintings were arcylic, I did not take a second look.

2 NEW EXHIBITIONS

For both Lyn Dickson and Cody Joy their art materials, what they work with and what they make art with, provide the inspirations that result in their sophisticated pieces. (quoted from Space22 blog: http://space22ballarat.wordpress.com/current-exhibition/ )
