In The Groove

I haven't had much painting time but I thought I would show you my work in progress. Next week looks a lot quieter so I'm hoping for some much needed studio time. This painting already has the title 'In The Groove'. Another retro painting that's in the planning stages is another 'wallpaper' piece with a set of ceramic flying ducks on it. I hope I can pull that one off. I think it would look hilarious on a wall instead of the actual ceramic ducks. Maybe its just my humour hehehe.

I recently joined the Adelaide Art Society and they are having a members exhibition. I am delivering 3 painting today and I'm still undecided which ones to take. The exhibition will be opened on Saturday 30th October 2010 at 2pm and runs until Sunday 14th November 2010 at Adelaide Art Society, 112 Margaret St, North Adelaide. Come and have a look if you are in the neighbourhood. Check the website for opening times.

The other bit of news is the lovely postcard I got from my cyber friend Julie in the UK. I am a big fan of her work and she sent me a post card of one of her drawings. A lovely surprise and its sitting on my shelf where I can see it daily. If you haven't seen Julie's work its well worth a look. She is a warm hearted story teller and her work is sure to put a smile on your face. Thanks again Julie :)

Ok its time for me to get off the computer and work out which paintings to enter into the members exhibition.

I agree with Laura, the new painting's looking great! Good idea putting the lampshade in- and you've made it look like the bulb's lit!!! Dreamy! Feeling bashful after your generous plug... *cyber-blush* ;)

Laura, I'm glad it reminds you of your wallpaper when you were a teen. It means its getting the message across.

Julie, Yes the bulb is lit. That will be a challenge to get the beam of light right. And don't you feel bashful. You strut your stuff girl!

Yes, it reminds me of the geometric living room wallpaper of my youth. Lamp shade is fantastic texture!
