Hamilton Island Art Classes

2013-07-13 11.50.35

This boy was a stand out student at my Hamilton Island children’s art classes.  Here he is standing with his finished painting in front of the Hamilton Marina. He has a promising creative future I’m sure. Over the 2 weeks I taught over 100 students both children and adults and enjoyed the warm winter weather of Northern Queensland.

I’m home from my time on Hamilton Island .Here are some photos of the gallery with my exhibition of paintings. I taught children in the mornings and adults in the afternoon (all up over 100 students) and sold 3 paintings. I had a most enjoyable time and had some visitors come and stay with me for some of the time which was great.

Nice Exhibition

That’s ‘Nice’ as in Nice, France. Here are some photos from the Art of the Prom exhibition which displayed the work I did during my artist residency.the work was a  mixed media piece called ‘Out of Antiquity’ made up of 12 small panels. I have included some closeups so you can see all the little bits of memorabilia collected during my stay that I integrated into the artwork.7870_592130637485953_1823141052_n 425186_592130330819317_1685072452_n 942847_592128040819546_1289571481_n 969461_592130537485963_349838222_n 969693_592128910819459_1316665761_n 971629_592130267485990_239857104_n 992852_592129037486113_1906188919_n 1000804_592128694152814_1807885600_n

Art of the Prom

The Artwork I produced during my artist residency went on display at a huge art show on the Promenade de Anglais in Nice, France from the 7th to the 9th June . The invite pictured here shows the promenade . I stayed  in a unit on this very promenade during my stay and  would walk along it each balmy evening. Many wonderful memories thanks to Galleria Monteoliveto with whom I did the residency.

Artist Residency in Nice, France

‘Out of Antiquity’, mixed media

I have just come home from 2 weeks in Nice where I had an artist residency through Galleria Monteolivetto. It was an absolutely amazing time and the artwork I produced during this time will be exhibited next year in Europe. I was struck by the ancientness of the whole place and my work done on 12 small panels was inspired by how life comes out of this history and feeling of antiquity.
