The Royal Exhibition Centre Melbourne

What a magnificent venue for the Art Melbourne Exhibition to be held in. It is a work of art in itself. This is a night view with lights highlighting it's external beauty.

Opening night at Art Melbourne 2010

Opening night at the Art Melbourne Exhibition was a buzz. Several thousand people bustled through the Royal Exhibition Centre to get a look at the many thousands of exhibition pieces waiting to be snapped up by new owners.

Music in the Garden

Sunday "Music in the Garden" at the Victoria Park Centre for the Arts was very successful thanks to Kia Thompson and Jim Irvine for guitar backings and support. The nerves were there to begin with, but quickly disappeared  as it was such a relaxed and warm environment, set up under the almond tree. The weather was perfect and the audience were wonderful. What more could you want.

It was a very exciting start and as the nerves subsided we all relaxed and had a great time. I thoroughly enjoyed singing and love to see others going  to a place of memory and finding some emotion in the moment. My pleasure is seeing pleasure in others.

This is just the beginning and I will send out updates for upcoming events for those interested.        http://www.vimeo.com/11053853

Painting demo at Driftwood

It was a fun and exciting experience doing a painting demonstration at the entrance of the Driftwood Winery and Restaurant yesterday. Many people came through and were very interested, wanting to know about the process I used to create a painting. Volunteer student Lee Masters, also enjoyed the day painting showing how she has achieved so much in only four weeks of doing classes. She has already had several enquiries for possible sales of her work. Go Lee!!!The workshops that Lee attends are available for adults and are currently held in two different locations around Perth. See www.xtraordinar.com.au for workshop details and painting sales.
