Art Nation Love

Two Bright Lakes have been interviewed at the Schoolhouse on Art Nation!! Amazing!! It was a great little insight into the label and the studios. If you look closely you will see my paintings and blackboard drawings behind Hazel and Martha in the Chapel and you'll even see ME in my studio!! Click the image to watch the video.

Illustrations Saturday

I have been doing some illustrations for my Dad's book. I made this image with a red mask but really liked the strange colour so here it is. The actual image for the book is black and white.

I got to the studio today and Gemma in the upstairs studio had her sewing class on and there was a yellow cord hanging out of her window for her students to ring the bell. I really loved seeing it. It made me think of Rapunzel. So here is a little drawing inspired by it.

Houses + New Prints + Paintings at Klopper

Not some of the best photography but you get the gist! I have some paintings in a lovely shop called Klopper in the South Melbourne market. They are very well housed amoungst the beautiful items. They are well prices and surrounded by yummy food stalls. Go and have peek.

The prints are some new images that I am working on. These are proofs. So far I am happy. i have been trying out some new water based inks. I of course forgot this fact when I went to paste the rice paper onto my plate with water/rice glue. It bled everywhere, even onto my very expensive etching blanket. I was very sad. I was rewarded after with the big big print (the last image here) it is well etched and I feel ready to edition it (with the oil based inks!)

Commissioned miniature replicas

I painted these little houses for my brother. The red doored house is a replica of his house and the other one is a terrace in a nearby street. You too can have a replica made of your house...

Sunday Sunday

A great day at the markets today finding great treasures like the blundstones for $10 and the crocheted blanket also $10. Atticus and I walked through the Botanical gardens this afternoon and encountered beautiful succulents and cacti. The colours are amazing.
