No more exhibitions! It drains the creative juices and distracts the flow. Since the joint show in November, with Tony Hull and Ken Orchard, it has taken me weeks and weeks, (well... there was Christmas in there) to get my head around taking up the brush and painting again. I have just completed projects for the Fine Art magazine, this year's submissions...title" How to Paint Gum Trees" in 5 parts, is finally complete and has been delivered to Express Publications at Silverwater. That was an enormous effort, requiring sitting at the computer for hours and hours and painting many step-by-step examples...gum trees, gum leaves, tree trunks, gum blossoms...whew, gum trees DONE!. I don't know how people work at computers all day!
Now the slate is clean and I can concentrate on what to enter for the NSW Government Plein Air Painting Prize 2015...entries due in March. Maybe two caravans...
