Artgeo Gallery in Busselton is hosting a fabulous exhibition at the moment by Perth artist Thomas Hoareau.   His paintings are substantial in size as well as message and I was thoroughly bowled over by his skill and the content of his work.  My particular favourite was of all the people on the raft which is a type of copy of an old painting but Mr. Hoareau has set it in modern suburbia with an easel as the mast and washing machines from a laundramat in the background.  I loved it and because it is so big really slaps you in the face.  If you get the chance, I recommend a visit to Busselton for a look.

IMG_0945Six weeks till Christmas eeeek!!!!!! So much to do so little time. I know I work better under pressure but this is ridiculous, but I am chipping away at the work I have to finish. Pieces for the Bunbury Art Gallery are finished. (Thank God) Just some tweaking to do. Then I have to finish work for Busselton which is in progress at the moment, still alot to do but if I stay calm I think I will be ok. Mind you no-one will get anything for Christmas this year as I wont have time, maybe not even lunch !!!!!! Fingers crossed and keep you posted….

The things that lurk in your workshop!!!

The things that lurk in your workshop!!!

I finally got it together and fired up the kiln on the weekend, had a mix of glaze and bisque. All went well and had a lovely soft green glaze which turned out exceptionally well, I am desperate for some new kiln supports though and must dig some up on the internet, mine are so old and broken it takes forever to load the kiln and you have to jiggle everything about to get it sitting right. So annoying. Anyway I am tentatively happy about my progress so far, but I know I have to make things move along quicker if Im to have all ready for my big solo in January. (knees knocking!!)
The lovely mirror is a present for my niece, as it is her Birthday shortly, and she always helps me by collecting shells and wood for me when she is on holiday somewhere so this is a way also to show her personally how much she is appreciated.

art baskets-001Its been very busy time lately and I havnt had a chance to get into my studio at all !!!! I have had a delivery of some new glazes which Im dying to try out and hopefully will by Saturday. The weather down here is lousey, so a goodtime to get workshop stuff done. The Signature South-West opens tomorrow night in Busselton, so if you are in the area dont forget to call in and support the local art scene, plus you will get a glass of delicious local wine !!! You dont need a better incentive.  Last year I was awarded “Highly Commended” for the three porcelain vessels with added found objects, so fingers crossed for this year…..
