Lots has been happening in the studio this month, it's been hard to keep up with it all! Firstly I have a series of workshops planned at my Shellharbour studio... what started as a tentative expression of interest resulted in the first workshop being booked out within an hour, three more by the end of the day, people travelling from interstate and now a rather large waiting list. I couldn't believe it! Thanks so much to those who have signed up... my wife Kerrie and I are so looking forward to hosting this painting experience which includes a walk to the state park, painting and tuition in my studio and... Kerrie's famous 3 course lunch! Can't wait.
In another exciting development... I have begun writing an e-book about how to thrive as an artist in the digital age. Following on from loads of questions I have been getting at my new blog StudioDoor , this will be a comprehensive toolkit for all creative professionals trying to make a living from their art. If you have any questions or suggestions about what you would like to see included... please don't hesitate to get in touch and let me know!
In the studio this month it has been a mixed bag... my collection of Victorian countryscapes continues to grow in preparation for my Melbourne show in July. What seems to be emerging is a golden landscape of autumn trees and dusty lanes... rural Victoria in all its glory! As always, the Sydney foreshore continues to be a delight to paint... I've so enjoyed painting my old favourites... Balmoral Beach, iconic Balmain and of course Lavender Bay!
