The last two months held lots of excitement, emotional ups and downs and a lot of joy….. Vernon and I had our “From Paris to Pop” exhibition and it was a great success. Both of us sold pictures and we also sold a few statues for Marieke Prinsloo – which is one of those “feel good” things one do…. as Vernon says: “paying it forward”.
Then we had the “Friends in Art” exhibition from 16 to 31 May at the P.J.Olivier Art centre which, although not so many works sold, in the current economic climate was successful. Not only in selling art, but in showcasing my friends’ work and we even had a spot on LITNET and had articles in the local newspapers.
Currently I am preparing to do a Nude for the Oude Libertas exhibition. This is a group exhibition with “friends in art.”
I am excited about my art….. it is becoming such a driving force in my life…. I am constantly thinking of which picture to do next, and can not decide should it be pastell, or oil, or both? – I want to experiment more…. have more time for art…..
And all in all….. I am so grateful that along the way my time in Paris – is meaningful and can bring joy to people – not only those I know but also those I got to know….
Joy in Art and Art through Joy…… Thankfull to be a part of something greater than just me……
