Selecting artworks for 2017 calendar…. Tasmania from my Brush


I have been looking over artworks I have done in the post year and selecting 12 (plus one for the cover)  for a 2017 calendar with the theme Tasmania from my Brush. I wanted variety within the cohesion of Tasmania, generally with locations identifiable to some degree.  Then there is consideration of selecting ones that will fit with the format of the calendar (though the silk fire one will have extra space either side, generally I chose landscape format). They also need enough contrast to print well. These are half of the works  I will use.

Silk pendants in Gold settings


Gold setting silk pendants rrpI have been scanning and coding my silk pendants to send to a gallery for selection of ones to purchase at wholesale price. Each is in a good quality finely made gold setting with the silk stretched over a domed metal insert. The original watercolour style paintings on silk are individually painted so each is an original artwork in miniature. I do not use anything to restrict the flow of the dyes as I love the serendipitous effect of watercolour technique. The finished paintings are fixed, then after mounting are treated with a uv and stain resistant finish.
