The Countdown

Today being the 24th of October means I have exactly 8 calendar months till my exhibition opens in Melbourne. I am working on a whole new body of work for this exhibition and as you can already see the work will be with a 50s, 60s and 70s retro theme. I want 20 good paintings for this exhibition so I did some quick calculations. Allowing time for the festive season and organising the transportation and allowing travelling and hanging time etc. etc., I need to do 3 paintings a month. With all my other womanly duties (sexist I know :P) and commitments it means head down and bum up for this little duck hehehe. Its just a little mini freak out, nothing to worry about. Of course any retro ideas or memories you might have would be welcomed. In fact any inspiration at all.

Maybe I can find an old photo and scan the orange/brown/gold rectangles. Bums up!

You'll come up trumps Uta! ...(that means you'll win in the end- in case you're not familiar with the phrase and it sounded rude!) Looking forward to seeing your new paintings and congrats on getting the exhibition! You're a star :)
