December delight

Another trip to Hawera where we dismantled my watercolour exhibition. Beautiful gallery, beautiful people and I’m so pleased that I did it.

Part of the weekend was also spent painting outdoors with the Watercolour NZ artists at the paintaway weekend in Oakura, Taranaki. It rained most of the time but most people were able to find a dry spot to paint.

On the last day we painted as a group in the Okato hall. The most amazing watercolour artists and all so open and giving of their knowledge. We displayed our work as a little pop up for locals to visit.

Artists working and displaying their art.

One of my philosophies about art is that when I sell some artwork of mine I like to support other artists and buy their art work. With sales happening in Hawera I have recently acquired some glass artwork by Waverley artist Lisa Walsh. Every time we go through South Taranaki we stop at her studio and see what she has. This time I bought some. Check out her website.

The other art work I have recently acquired is called Coastal Honey by Ron Hall. Ron uses old beehives for his works and they have amazing texture and colour . They have history and tell a story of their past. Ron has a website and is on Instagram.

In the new year we will start up the Waihi plein air painters again. Have an Open Studio Ramble at anniversary weekend, and I’m looking forward to taking a group of enthusiastic watercolour artists to the Bay of Islands.
