I have been going back through some old art, sorting out some things in old suitcases and boxes. I think its quite important to look back on what you have done previously, the good, the bad and the ugly. At the time it was painted, I was not that happy with this, and it got buried in a box with other mistakes. Yet, when photographed and cropped, it takes on a whole new look and feel. I don’t quite know what to do with the original painting, but as a photograph, I really like it.
Looking forward, I have been getting things planned in preparation for both the annual Taranaki Art Exhibition and Awards and my exhibition. It is a very exciting time.
The sun is out, too. The sky a brilliant cloudless blue, and the sea is glimmering once again. It makes it seem like summer is here and yet its only late August!! The snow on the mountain is the only clue that it is definitely not summer.
