Acrylic 50 x 70 cm
I took part in the Bendigo Easter Festival Paint out where a number of artists were invited to paint aspects of the festival. This is my painting of children in Rosalind Park. The paintings are on display for another week at the Information Centre.
It becomes a companion piece to my painting of the children’s petting farm last year.
Lino cut 31 x 47 cm
The third in my series of lino-cuts of the children of Willowra. I printed a proof in 2015, but only recently produced an edition.
We left Willowra late last year, after three years, and we deeply miss the children. They are beautiful.
Over the Easter weekend I took part in the Bendigo Easter Festival Paint Out, where ten local artists were tasked with painting festival action. We were expected to paint for at least three hours on each of two days.
I accepted the challenge of moving beyond the proverbial comfort zone, and found it an enriching experience engaging with the public as I worked. Some children told me I was a good artist, despite evidence to the contrary in the early stages of the painting.
I produced this acrylic painting, entirely from life, of the children’s animal farm in Rosalind Park. I think it works quite well.
