As you probably have guessed my solo show was cancelled, and rightly so, we all need to be aware of the rules and restrictions placed on us and abide by them if we are to stay safe. However it is still so inspiring to receive positive news and know that people are still connecting to art, it is so good for the soul and I am happy to have sold some paintings recently at my online gallery BLUETHUMB - see below. I was delighted to sell Ayres Rock - Uluru and a few days later I uploaded Autumn Memories and it sold overnight! Quickest sale ever and very thankful to the collectors!
I have also painted 2 new works of art, seeing as my Govetts Leap Painting sold from the studio this year, I have replaced it with a new one with a different outlook to keep it unique! Also captured the beautiful snow at the Three Sisters, I will never forget the day I saw it, it sure did take my breath away. You can view both at my Bluethumb online gallery there is also Afterpay available for those on a budget where you can pay in instalments.

I enjoy creating new designs for my products and always feel inspired when I receive sales. Thankful for every one of them! You can see a selection below of clothing, stationery and home decor. There are now pin buttons which would make great little gifts for that special someone.
Also delighted to hear of cushion sales at Everglades Historic House and Gardens just before they closed due to the virus. Makes my heart sing to know my work is giving joy to others.

SOLO SHOW - UPDATE DUE TO THE VIRUS MY SHOW HAS BEEN CANCELLED PLEASE STAY SAFE ALL!
Firstly a belated Happy New Year to All! Hope you had a wonderful festive season and apologies for this late blog. I am excited to announce that I will be holding a solo show at the Blue Mountains Heritage Centre in Blackheath, Govetts Leap Road for all of April 2020. Show opens 2nd April and runs until the end. There will be a wide variety of art for all to enjoy. So all art lovers pop along if you can and also take in the stunning views at Govetts Leap Lookout!
SALES of ORIGINALS
Now where to begin, it has been pretty hectic this end with all sorts of things happening as I am sure it is with most people these days. I finished 2019 off with a happy ending and sold a Couple of Galahs on Boxing Day at The Edge Gallery in Katoomba that was on show with the Blue Mountains Creative Arts Network Summer Exhibition. ☺ Thankful to buyer!
2020 started off with a sale of my 'Emus - Watcha Lookin' At?' on Bluethumb. Sold to a lovely lady with twins, a boy and a girl. Always a delight to hear the story behind the sale. The painting was chosen by her children and now hangs at the top of the stairwell to encourage everyone to smile which is the aim of all my Fun Birds in this Series.
I had my very first request for a commission on Bluethumb to paint Cheeky
Cockatiels (available on Bluethumb) on a larger scale. This was exciting news for me and also a challenge that I took on straight away. Thoroughly enjoyed the process and the interaction was easy for both parties. I organised to deliver the painting myself seeing as we frequented the area where the buyer lived and happy to say she was delighted with it! Was great to receive an email of a photo of it in situ framed and on the wall for all to admire. It was the biggest commission to date and the size was 91cm x 91cm. Here I am below so as you can see the scale of the painting. ☺
I had a lovely request by a lady through Bluethumb wanting to view Govetts Leap Lookout as a gift for her friend's wedding. They had met in the Blue Mountains so the area is very special to them. After viewing the painting it was purchased from the studio. Seeing as I am exhibiting for all of April at the Blue Mountains Heritage Centre in Blackheath (on Govetts Leap Road) another is now being painted in a similar style.
SELECTION OF NEW PAINTINGS
I have been trying to find time to paint in between work, our airbnb and visitors from overseas staying with us for a week! Also my husband, John retired at Christmas time and we will be spending more time together and I will keep on track with my art when I can. I have been painting some birds as part of a Fun Bird Series and also felt drawn to paint Koalas after the bushfires in Australia. Below are new paintings available now at Bluethumb. (Click on each image to purchase online)

I sold 3 paintings on Bluethumb (Yay! for Bluethumb) what a lovely surprise to receive an email saying Congratulations your artworks have been sold. Always a buzz and so thankful!
I also entered 4 artworks in to Blue Mountains Artfest at Wentworth Falls and was blown away when 3 out of 4 were sold. One I found out was a lovely return buyer.

Please pop in from time to time to see what I am up to and find out what plans I have for next year! Stay well and safe all xx
Hope you are keeping well all! Wow! Where has the time gone to?.....it has flown and just keeps flying. Flight must be on my mind as I seem to be partial to painting birds at the moment and have had a couple of bird painting sales since I last checked in and wrote a blog. I know we are all becoming more time poor these days so will keep this as short as I can.
Firstly so happy to have sold my Quirky Emu at Bluethumb always a buzz when you receive an email to say 'Congratulations your artwork has sold'! Made my day at the time - and then I woke the next day and had another email with Congratulations your artwork has sold! This time it was Friendly Magpie. You can see both below, what a lift it gave me. Sooo happy these two have found new homes and always thankful to buyers of my work. Hope they bring much joy! You can find more originals for sale at my Bluethumb profile and if interested in keeping up with new works please join and follow me.
NEW WORKS - BIRDS
So as I was saying birds are on my mind lately and seeing as another Quirky Emu had flown away, I wanted to attempt to try and paint 2 on a canvas on a larger scale. One day when time allowed I grabbed my brushes and splashed away and when finished I was so pleased with these 2. I really do hope my Quirky Emus make you smile, they do me. These 2 cute, happy birdies are painted on a 61 x 61 cm canvas on a plain white background so they can enjoy the limelight. Click HERE for more information or email me ☺ firstname.lastname@example.org
As I enjoyed painting the above quirky emus very much I bought another canvas same size and painted 'Kooky Kookaburras'! What fun I had with these 2 below and I am now thinking of another pair of cute characters to paint. Made my day also when I received an email yesterday (12th Oct) saying they had been featured in the Staff Picks at Bluethumb! See below for my Kooky Kookaburras and if interested in more information click HERE or email.
NEW PAINTING - SNOW AT KATOOMBA CREEK, BLUE MOUNTAINS
I may have mentioned before in an earlier blog, but I can't remember, that we had snow in the Blue Mountains this winter. It was like a fantasy wonderland and I took lots of photos, I ran around madly clicking excited to have lots of lovely photos for references. I have painted one already that is mounted in a beautiful wooden Australian crafted frame and is available for sale at my Bluethumb profile - click HERE or email me direct. I have plans for a large Blue Mountains painting of the The Three Sisters in Snow but first things first I have to buy the canvas and hope it will fit in my car! However I am still wrapped up in my bird paintings and will be painting some more of those first. So stay tuned...see below latest painting added to my Blue Mountains Series. As you can see there is lots of juicy detail in this one as I like to focus on the little things in nature that we sometimes miss in the rush of life.
SPRING EXHIBITION AT THE EDGE GALLERY WITH BMCAN
