Down the Rabbit Hole & Out the Other Side


Our Wonderland Exhibition
I haven't posted for wee while as I've been really busy with The Bad Apples Artist Collective "Alice in Wonderland" Exhibition which I have been hosting here in Scotland. It has been so exciting to bring all of my international artist pals over for this show which was a long time in the planning. It's causing quite a stir in our little "rural" venue.

We are also presenting the show online & will ship purchases at the show end- Have a peep here and check out all of the works created specially for the show.

Here is a close up of the framing on these pieces, I'm really pleased with how they turned out


Gallery Heinzel Winter Exhibition 
I have a few winter exhibitions coming up and this is the one I'm drawing for just now. I completed my little Dartford Warbler and now I'm doing a second bird piece of Budgies, I was inspired to something colourful and my first pets were Budgies so I feel the piece is coming together quite quickly, they are familiar to me and I'm enjoying the "cheekiness" of their characters.
The other piece that I completed is slightly larger. The maiden I posted previously was probably a bit too large to finish on time so I have left her to one side for now and my new "maiden" has a theme of migration, journeys, goodbyes, hibernation and regeneration. An online friend suggested the name "Pilgrim" for her and this fitted perfectly as I think she is entering a "pilgrimage" of quiet contemplation and solitude over winter. It wasn't my intention to make her an expectant mother, but she appears to be, so maybe this is a wonderful restful time for her before her inner world changes again.
Hope you like these 2 new ones and I'll share my cheeky budgies with you soon.
