‘Competitions & construction’

I have been enjoying keeping busy  working on separate pieces for a couple of Competitions coming up in Sydney & for the last 3 weekends I’ve been showing some pieces at the Samford & surrounds Art Trail & Open Studios open from 10am until 4pm each Saturday & Sunday for 4 weeks.

Busy, Busy, Busy…..

06/04/2019 JUDGING DAY

With many thanks to Ali & Charlotte,  a long drive to Kingaroy to where  judging was to be held on the 6th April at the art gallery.   What a wonderful surprise to find that I was awarded first prize from a pool of 11 participants.      This is the largest prize I have ever won $7000.00 – Thank-You Kingaroy Council & art gallery. 

$10000 Kingaroy sculpture prize – & the winner is – Evancee.

Rain at last.

Rain at last.

Finally after all of this sweltering heat, we get some relief – RAIN  & COOLER WEATHER.  The grass has shot up again, the trees & plants look so much happier. Thank-You we are all at peace.


Competition year

Competition Year

This is the year where my wire art is going to be found in a huge way – I can just feel it.  All of my  Galleries & comps are all lined up & waiting for the dates.

You know when you have ‘that’ feeling well I have it in a big way – this year is going to be my year! 2019 here I come.

Water Water & more Water.

Water Water & more Water.

Wow if we are not flooding we could be in drought  & if we are none of these we could be on fire in a wind storm, hurricane, typhoon or freezing over. What is happening to our Mother earth – have we pushed her to the edge & now is rebelling!

I must say I’m able to work more comfortably with the rain that we are having – the heat was just too oppressive. – cool weather produces cool sculptures. 



Hot, Hot & Hotter

Hot Hot & Hotter.

Like the witch in Wizard of Oz said – ‘I’m meltinnggg’.  This heat is making it hard for me to do any of my larger Sculptures that are out on the deck but am stocking up on some smaller pieces that I can work on in the air-conditioning.  My legs are still a bit wobbly but no effect on my  sculptures.                                                                             I am finished my beautiful girl ‘Evancee’ & am now going to be working on a mate for her – does anyone have any tips for a name?

All comps for 2019 registered & now just waiting for the dates to roll around – this is my year!

Wobbly Legs

Well it was bound to happen sooner or later, due to all this heat & me just doing too much yes my M.S  has heightened my  pain & walking is a bit of a challenge also.  Thank goodness I am still able to do my Sculptures, at the moment I am working on a Goanna.

I have booked in  all of the up & coming Competitions I will be entering throughout the year –                                            * MARCH – 10000 Biennial Kingaroy Sculpture Prize 2019 being held at the Kingaroy Reginal Art Gallery.                   * MAY – Moreton Bay Region Art Awards 2019 being held at the Strathpine Community Center.                                       * JUNE – Art Trail from the 1st June until the 23rd June.                                                                                                              * AUGUST – The EKKA.

There will be an exhibition that I am planning on holding which will be held later in the year TBA.                                So, lets embrace the year ahead & enjoy all that is good.
