Breakdown printing

Some silk on my print table which has been breakdown printed using the screen in a previous post. It looks a lot more yellow now it has been washed out so I’ll over dye some of it but I’m reasonably happy with it. I’m doing various silks printed with gum leaves for an exhibition piece […]

Thermofax prints

The green fabric, above, is still in progress – I made 2 thermofax screens using a print from a rolled up piece of cardboard. The print below was designed from a photo of a palm tree trunk.  When we were in Hobart, we visited the MONA (museum of old and new art) pics below. The […]

Sculpture by the Sea 2014

Monday we made our annual visit to Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe, which is always worth seeing. You can see it was a beautiful day – not too hot and we also had a delicious fresh fish lunch at the Cottesloe Hotel. These are my collection of photos – I haven’t added most of the artists names but […]

WAFTA exhibition: Mysterium

  Yesterday I did my roster and artist talk at the Mysterium exhibition at the Central Tafe Gallery in Perth. Its a fabulous show of WAFTA members’ work that really shows the diversity of ideas and skills in the group – well worth seeing if you’re in Perth. Its on until 16th November. These pics […]

Still here!

I finally finished my Mysterium piece, right on the deadline after many long days and nights sewing.I can’t show it yet and the exhibition is not until October. The work had to be in early so a catalogue with photos etc. could be prepared. I’m now working on my DW blue challenge piece – also […]

Scorched Earth sold!

I went to pick up my 2 pieces from the Minnawarra Art Awards this morning and found out the quilt (above) was sold. I’m very happy someone liked it enough to buy it, but I know I underpriced it. I was in such a rush getting my entry in and had to price it before […]

Our Exhibition Opens 9th November!

I should be busy working on my pieces for Dimensions but am recovering from having 3 teeth out yesterday. I’ll have to get back to work soon – still have lots to do. At our last meeting some great work appeared for the exhibition so I’m sure it will be worth a visit. On Friday, […]

Our back garden

My lace panel is sent to Wongan Hills for the exhibition there – I’ll take some pics of the finished piece when it returns but I thought I’d show our back garden today as it’s not looking too bad now. Some of our Xanthorrhoeas (grass trees) have grown spears – below. These are native and were here […]

Spring has sprung

This week we’ve had very wintery weather but today was better, so this afternoon we went to Araluen, a garden not far from us, to check out the tulips which were impressive. We unexpectedly ran into DH’s brother and sister in law who were taking his Mum to see the tulips. There were also beautiful magnolias, […]

Exhibition photos

Thank you  for all the encouraging comments on my last post. Here we are at the opening night – below: Rivka’s great food. None left by the end of the evening!  Genesis in the Hills is owned and run by Ita & Rivka who are very community minded and love to support the arts, especially […]
