around here lately ....

morning all.
did i mention that i am taking part in my very FIRST exhibition. 
oh yes, i did that it my last post. 
of course i did. 
can you tell i am a wee bit excited ?? 
the 2011 Bendigo Bank Southern Art and Craft Trail is going to be huge. if you have not checked out the website yet, pop on over and have a look, making sure you click on the "our artists" tab.
well, it is because of this that i have been a little absent from the world of blogging for the last month or so. i have churned out 16 finished pieces so far and have a few more bubbling away. i kinda feel that if i just "go nuts" and create then it will give me the opportunity as the exhibition gets closer (which it actually now is creeping up on me ..... eeeeek ) to have the luxury of choosing what is going to work best in the gallery space and what compliments Justine's AMAZING lino-cut textile work. 
here is a current work in progress that i have put on my mantle in the living room to look at for the next week while i work out where i am going to head with it next....
i wonder what will appear amidst the layers of this one???

here is another one i have recently completed....
i am loving the colours on this one.

i have also been really busy setting up my very own "le-papier" shop on the fabulous Etsy site, so stay tuned for the announcement that the beautiful art charms and greeting cards are available to purchase through my very own online patient though, as i have to get the rest of my paintings finished first.
anyway...that's me. busy. painting. making exhibition invites. being mum. loading up my etsy shop. cooking. creating. exploring. never a dull moment around here lately ...
