Steps to an Exhibition

The Aspire Gallery LITTLE BIG Exhibition is currently showing in Paddington, Qld. This is a National exhibition and I have been so thrilled to be a finalist. Thirty paintings were selected for the gallery exhibition from 250 entries received from Queensland and interstate artists. I have also been selected for the Online Exhibition. The gallery exhibition has been beautifully curated and I’m proud to be part of it with so many talented artists being represented. Hope you can visit if you’re in or around Brisbane – please scroll down for catalogues, address, times, etc. Thank you to the selectors at Aspire Gallery.

The steps needed to getting a painting to the point of showing, or sharing on social media, are many – the inspiration, the tools and painting materials, sketches, photos, and painting experience are just a few. For those of us who are rural artists there is often the trip to the big smoke and lunch somewhere different along the way when delivering our artworks. This delivery step to Brisbane, with my husband driving, resulted in a really delicious hamburger each at a little restaurant in Racecourse Road, Ascot. I’ve included below some of the steps the two paintings took while emerging on my easel.

The First Flush of Sunrise (the view from our balcony – looking across to the Sunshine Coast and hinterland, with Mt Coolum is the distance) has been chosen for the Gallery Exhibition (acrylic on stretched Belgian Linen 101cms Sq.).
