The local paper ran a little article on me, celebrating the success of a local artist.
I'm especially happy that the painting selected features a local view, and one I have always loved. I have a lot more Awhitu watercolour paintings in mind, its just a matter of time before they start appearing as a continuation of my Manukau Harbour series.
Coincidentally, the next show I am exhibiting at is the Pollok Gallery 'My World' exhibition, in Awhitu! Opening night is this Friday, 24th October.
I exhibited there last year for their 'Abstractions' competition, and was awarded a merit for one of my 'Memories of Wetlands' series works. At that time I knew very few artists out this way, and was talking to one of the few people there I had met previously, who made very kind comments on my work. I told my partner who said something along the lines of 'of course she has to say something nice about your work'. I had no idea she was the judge and awarded me the first merit award, a lovely surprise. It was a stunning show and I loved the theme.
