Blue, blue and blue🙂5 shades of blue to be exact plus silver, white, yellow, pink, purple … not sure if it’s finished,will wait a while and then see how I think about it. It’s called “My Happy Place.”
A night on the town tonight; we attended the opening night showcase of Laurie Bullied’s floral art celebrated with fine wines and vermouth by Bettenay Wines and Margret River Nougat and a grazing table presented by Gourmet Food Merchant of Cowaramup – what a lovely evening.
This week I have been inspired. I have painted 2 “blue” canvas and will add one more to make a series. Today I tried a few different colours using the same technique and in art class today we experimented with watercolours.

Do you need a pop of colour in your life? Does your creative energy energy need a boost? Do you need inspiration? Or want to talk to like minded creatives? Well the Margaret River Region Open Studios is for you (28 April – 13 May 2018). The artists are generous with their time and their conversation – happy to talk creative process.
Today I visited four studios/galleries and talked about the use of leather and gold leaf in Molly Coy’s work, talked about the inspiration a historical, photographic crime journal, provided to artist Deanne Haddow, discussed process, acrylic pours, special ingredients, peacocks and then had a little card reading (Affirmation Goddess Oracle cards) with Anita Revel and if that wasn’t enough art and art talk for one day, I finished the tour with a browse of the Margaret River Gallery – such a great variety of styles, modern and traditional here. There is something for everyone to enjoy at the Margaret River Region Open Studios – one hundred and thirty artists open their doors to the public – what a great idea!
Tomorrow is a new day – and more studios to visit!
