Kandos Painters group had an exhibition over the centenary of Kandos weekend in October. I sold a painting on opening night. My first real attempt at abstract art which is my current fascination. Entitled “Desert Skins”, it has several different textural media in the background, which reminded me of snake skins, sand, bark, etcetera. One of the members who also sold a painting on opening night, said later, “Now we are real artists!” Other paintings I entered in the show were these: I am back painting again after a stressful time with my mother’s and my health issues. Feels good!
I have had many careers in my 70+ years, but always creativity was at the forefront. I am passionate about using less and wasting less. I love design, painting, decorating, and now I am combining all that into making junk journals. Creating is like breathing for me!
