I added a figure to my Meander Falls Watercolour to emphasis the power of the water both in its tumble over the vertical rock face and the swirling around in the steam bed below. In our lives we like to feel in control and many feel powerful in some manner. But compared with nature our power is somewhat insignificant. In the Zen art which influences my work, the human figure is generally relatively insignificant. The updated version of Meander Falls is on display at the NWAC exhibition at the Devonport Regional Art Gallery. My second piece is my glass sculpture which was shown in Hobart at the Material Girl Exhibition and is now on display in Devonport. Unfortunately I could not make it to the opening but will certainly call in to see the works and intend to paint at the Artists in Action on Sunday July 1st.
I am back home, many hundreds of photos later. Loads of inspiration. Wonderful catching up with family and friends. Now busy with commissions (bad luck about Christmas). Spent last night organising New year art sessions. I spaced this lot more (hope it suits Natalia).
