Well, Hello September 1st 🙂 I am in such a good mood today, I want to shout from the roof top and dance.
Today I am inviting you to join me in my celebration. I am celebrating a couple of things and thought you might like to share in some of my good sparkles today. In fact I am so excited I am going to be giving away the Fairy Painting entitled “A glimmer of Hope” as featured on this post. She is also the first painting for the 29 faces challenge starting today as hosted by Ayala Art. So quick read on to find out why as well as how you can be in with a chance to receive this original painting before I change my mind lol
Today I would like to simply share with you a happy positive experience. I am rather excited about it, which is why I am shouting it from the roof tops lol I hope my excitement is catchy so you too find some inspiration from my share today.
I am an artist just starting to get my art work out to the public. I am participating in my very first art exhibition thanks to being a member of the Glenrothes Art Club. I have 3 pieces of art work hanging along side lots of other great artists, one of them a portrait of my favourite German artist Lioba Bruckner For me this is really very exciting. It is an opportunity to get my work seen by the general public locally up close and personal. Up until now I have only ever posted photographs of my work on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
See below for a sneak peek at the exhibition held at the Rothes Halls, Glenrothes, Fife. With free entry it is easy to come along and see for yourself if you are able to get to the Rothes Halls. Open Monday to Saturday between 10am and 5pm
When an acrylic seascape painting was going horribly wrong, I decided to leave it to one side until I was ready to continue. It was actually months before I finally got some inspiration one day, when I got the urge to try a more expressive painting style. I already had new palette knives that I had not tried yet, so this seemed a great opportunity to break open the packaging and give expressive palette knife painting a go.
