I'm on a roll !!!!

This has been a very encouraging week. I've been  waiting for the finalists in the Lethbridge 10000 art prize to be announced......and here I am, to be hung in the show from 15th to 30th June at the Lethbridge Gallery, Paddington, Brisbane.
Signs Of The Times - acrylics, 46 x 46cm
This is a comment on the destructive proliferation of advertising in our society. The (deliberate) crazing and distressed surface implies the disintegration of our social structure with figures disappearing into a background of colourful, and often indecipherable, advertising.

AND there's more.... my second submission will be in the online show for the same duration...

A Conversation With Myself - acrylics, 35 x 35 cm

In my quest to find the essence of abstract painting I have given myself over to the simple movement of brush and paint .  The expression of id is instinctual and unstructured.

AND.....I've sold a painting this week...hooray!


Lean On Me, or When Pears Are Blue
30 x 30 cm, acrylics
It's been a week of renewed confidence...just when it was waning....and a boost to the art account that will enable me to buy more supplies...Yay !!!!!

To celebrate this wonderful turn of events I am offering FREE POSTAGE in my ETSY shop until 8th June for my followers.
Just use this coupon code:  YAYMAY2013 before checkout.

Back to Jane's last class next post...... see ya.

  18. I love works with an underlying message, especially a social comment. I especially love your textured pieces in yellow. They remind me of a old, weathered wall that has layers of posters applied one over the other each wanting to be on top.
    Oh and those pears...you're really good Jo. I am kicking myself for missing so much of your work.
