Elated was the feeling today as I delivered my 'Midnight' artwork (wardrobe) to Gallery Yampu in Birkenhead (Port Adelaide), SA.
I spent a min of 30hours working on this over the last couple of weeks, cutting stencil, practice spraying on canvas, sanding back the wardrobe, painting the wardrobe black, creating my Midnight scenery and stencilling two portraits onto each door plus a spray of clear acrylic.
This is the biggest piece I have attempted to date and I am quite proud of it. I hope you like it too!
(yes it is a self-portrait)
Here are the progress pics….
If you are in SA and would like to see this piece in real life, please come along to the exhibition opening night Wed 12th Feb, 6pm at Gallery Yampu. If you can't come along on the night, just pop in the gallery on the weekend! Check the dates in the pic below.
I miss blogging! I spend too much time on crapbook lol.
Back in June, I blogged a moon photo... here is another I took I think in August... only just got them off the camera! I have used manual settings and discarded (deleted) some that were no good and this is the one I chose. I have played around in photoshop a little bit reducing the shadows slightly and lots of little sparkly's appeared which I'm hoping are the stars!
I wish I had a great big zoom lens for more clarity but it's still pretty cool. Love looking at the moon's craters.
So I have been up to something the last 2 months.....
(well you know apart from working, parenting, houseworking etc)
I made these artworks as a custom order for one of my facebook likers, Alison.
I really enjoyed this project, found it challenging but has helped refine my stenciling technique. You can follow me on facebook where I usually share all my progress pics. I'll also be sharing some other work soon on the blog however the facebook page always has the most up to date progress.
The baby at the top is Alison's sponsor child in Kenya, the boy, Brecon and the girl, Imogen, are Alison's children. They are traveling to Kenya in October to volunteer their time with Mission in Action.
They have a variety of projects that they are raising money for. If you are interested in supporting their mission, head to the website Melbourne 2 Kenya 2013.
Disclaimer: It was not in any agreement for me to share Alison's Melbourne 2 Kenya project details, I just really like it and wanted to share it. Our dealings were solely based on her purchase of my artworks - and I should also point out that I am not available for any custom orders at this stage.
