Week 5 - happenings..

hi again

This week two things.. first about the monkeys in Parnell!
It's Chinese New Year celebrations and it's the year of the monkey, so there are 20 handmade monkeys in Parnell waiting to be discovered.. and I have been fortunate to be able to paint a monkey for this event. 'Stardust' is exhibited at Black Door Gallery and available through silent bidding on the website. All details here

And second thing is this little painting done for week 5, first one for February. It is about evolution, genealogy, birds and bees, and anything you see in there - all valid. Acrylic paint on modelling paste, sealed with satin finish varnish, ready to hang on stretched canvas, with sides painted black (such a schlepp for me, but it does make the painting pop) How many birds can you see? How many bees? How many faces and profiles? Our brains are magical instruments, don't you think?
Thanks for visiting my blog - see next week ;)
