Kia Ora followers. It’s November!!!
I’m feeling a little anxious as I write this. I told you all last month that we were flying to Wellington for the annual SPLASH watercolour New Zealand exhibition. Well! Literally minutes ago the organisers contacted me to ask where my paintings were as they were hanging the art, judging and literally doing the final set up and my paintings haven’t been delivered 😢. The courier has gone home for the night so I’m waiting on tender hooks till tomorrow to find out where they are. Might be flying to Wellington to look at everyone else’s paintings.😭 I am literally praying they will turn up tomorrow.
On a better note, the remaining 3 artists of Unlimited Palette held a pop_up in the Church foyer down at the village on Labour weekend. Saturday 22nd October. A very successful day with sales and lots of wonderful conversations with interested people, wanting to know more about our practice. This was our first one after 2 years and I realised how much I had missed the one on one with the purchases of our work.
I felt particularly proud when I had return buyers from past years who were interested in seeing how my work had developed and purchasing new pieces.
Many of you may be aware that I have an online shop at pamsart.felt.co.nz . With Christmas coming up have a look for paintings that could be easily framed for gifts.
On the 17th November the Garden and Art festival opens in Tauranga. In the last couple of days I have been informed that I will be one of the artists to exhibit in the Tiny House Village. Several Tiny Homes will be placed in a group and artists will exhibit from this space. So come and find me at Bloom in the Bay at the Tauranga Racecourse grounds between Thursday 17th and Sunday 20th. I’ll have my awesome new flag out too.
Waihi Plein Air painters will meet across the road from Morton’s Garage at 9.30am on Friday 11th November. A beautiful old rustic building at 19 Haszard St Waihi. Come and join us for some sketching/painting practice and coffee afterwards.
Thank you all for following me. Have a great month and if you are in Wellington from the 5th to 20th November, check out the SPLASH exhibition at the Academy of Fine Arts, 1 Queens Wharf, Wellington. Hopefully you will be able to see my work!!!!
