Finalist at Emerging Artists Exhibition - South Perth Council Sept 2017
First prize in the acrylic section -
50th annual Beverly Art Show
BEHIND THE BRUSH
After turning 50 I decided to try my hand at something new - so I located a photo I wanted to paint, bought a canvas, some acrylic paints and brushes, and began painting.
Mr Peli was my first attempt. At the time, I was impressed that the bird actually resembled a bird, although many have thought he is on water, not flying through the clouds as intended! I have learned a great deal since Mr Peli days but continue to learn and appreciate all that is art.
For me, I really enjoy the process of layering the background and generating depth to the picture. Painting gives me great joy. I love zoning into the moment – then stepping away some time later to realise that something has been created. When you can actually see dimensions in a two dimensional canvas there is that sensation of achievement.
As the Vice President and the Newsletter editor for ACAS (Alfred Cove Art Society) I love being surrounded by art and artists.
