Opening Night Cocktail Party!

I had a fantastic time last night! Jem and I attended the Hidden Faces of the Archibald opening last night and enjoyed every minute of it. The paintings were incredible and strategcally placed all around the Park Hyatt. I was lucky enough to have mine placed in the main room where the function was held. It was also wonderful to meet fellow artists Helen Edwards and Raelene Sharp who also attended - who I hope to keep in contact with:)

Here are some pics - they were taken with my mobile phone, so quality is crappy

Dropping off..

This morning I dropped my portrait off at the Park Hyatt Melbourne for the Hidden Faces of the Archibald show opening this Wed night. With large painting under arm I wandered around the busy hotel until I found the drop off point. I did get a 'lovely' and 'wonderful' from one of the organisers - which is always so nice and re-assuring when dropping off work for some odd reason.

Getting There..

Still a lot more to do. I've started to give the crane some detail and am pretty happy with how it's progressing:)

Sorry for the severe lack of posts lately. For the past month and a bit I've been quite busy tackling the everyday hiccups life can throw at you from time to time. Things seem to have settled again, which means time for painting is once more! Here's a progress shot of my current painting. I'm going to put this one into over-drive and try to get it finished by the end of the long weekend. I've applied more detail to the face and fixed up her once wonky eye.. Still a heap to do - hair, crane, body.. This week she'll get the works!
