Not long to go now

As we Aussies say 'I've been flat out like a lizard drinking' getting ready for our exhibition which opens tomorrow night. I've been working on lots of paintings and today is the day for the 'hanging'. Below are some I've been working on.


This is one I started, I turned it upside down


and it ended up like this.


This one went from this


to this


and ended up as this


and this one knew what it was going to be all along. This is my usual style and is far less traumatic, I know where I'm going with these.


I'll also have lots of jewellery in the exhibition too.
