Lost in Thought
Lost in Thought - watercolour approx 30cmH x 40cmW
Winner : INAUGURAL GWENDA HACKETT
MEMORIAL WATERCOLOUR PRIZE
Royal South Australian Society of Arts
I am both delighted and very proud to announce that my little
painting has been adjudged the winner of the inaugural
Gwenda Hackett Memorial Watercolour Prize.
The award is in memory of the late Gwenda Hackett, a long time
Fellow of the Society, and was set up with a gift from her family.
It is to be awarded biannually for the best watercolour in the
RSASA Winter Exhibition.
This is a work that follows on from others I have produced, both in oils
and watercolours, honouring these lovely creatures.
A big thank you to all who have been involved in this exhibition and

Every now and then I find the need to do something a little different. I don't think this gentleman is actually a drover but I'm pretty sure he's from the Northern Territory.

Resting in slips - oil on canvas 20cm x 36cm
Another small oil.
To me a boat on land is like a fish out of water - t'aint natural.
This will be available in the soon upcoming
Blackwood Rotary Art Show.

Gawler Backyard - oil on canvas 20cm x 40cm
I have resisted painting landscapes for some time now. But seeing others paint
them with alacrity has spurred me on to try my hand.
I have started small, just to get a feel for the genre. I'll post a few more shortly.

When we're young we spend a lot of time wishing for things to happen.
As we get older we realise we have to become the agents of our own destiny.
I am happy to report that Haircut (below) was awarded 3rd prize at the recent Port Adelaide Community Art Centre exhibition.
I am also pleased to alert everyone to the intended formation of the
SOUTH AUSTRALIAN WATERCOLOUR SOCIETY.

Rough Night - watercolour on 300gsm medium (unknown make), 38cm x 28cm
Some papers are a dream to work on some are not. This pad has been a real pain in the @#&%$ but for some reason I keep returning to it. I don't think I have any scottish blood in me - although there are some personality traits that would indicate the opposite.
Don't forget I've got the watercolour portrait workshop coming up at The Framer.

We can all sympathise with the trauma of a young boy at the barbershop - everything is daunting and frightening and if you dare to make any move not only will you ruin your haircut but you could lose a piece of your ear as well.
I will be conducting a one day workshop in watercolour portrait painting on the 31 Mar 2012 at the Framer.
Contact Karen for details.

Little Miss Perfect - oil on canvas - 60cm x 90cm
As the Christmas season rushes relentlessly upon us I find myself focussing more and more on my family.
It is truly a time to be thankful and to count our blessings.
Try as I may in my paintings I can never get close to the the beauty of the real thing - hence my title for the picture - it refers to my grand daughter not to my painting of her.
Please have a very merry festive season and a truly happy new year.
(On display at the Port Adelaide Rotary Art Show just after Christmas)

Wimbledon - C'mon oil on canvas 90cm x 90cm
It's been a while since my last post and I have no excuses.
This painting is one of three showing the grandchildren that will be on display at the Victor Harbor Rotary Art Show in early January 2012. The others are both watercolours, "Independent" and "Because of the wind", posted previously on this blog.
In my next post I'll include work that will be on display at the Port Adelaide Rotary Art Show over the New Year.
