To paint my paintings in my paintings I have set up still life and interior ideas in front of me here in my home. But with the much yearned for duck away for a couple of nights of family camping with friends and pooches came the opportunity to play elsewhere. We travelled from Wiradjuri country through Dharug country to Gundungurra country and I brought with me a little painting I had painted in a residency in France back in 2017. With assistants all round, my little painting was installed with tents in view, in the hall, by the canoes, on the outdoor seating, hooked on the gate and positioned in the trees.
With this idea I will be taking a painting with me to the up-coming Art in the Park, Bathurst event this Sunday 18 April at 2pm till 4pm on the banks of the Wambool, Macquarie River near the corner of River Road and Stephen’s Lane Kelso. Art in the Park is a monthly artist initiated activity on the third Sunday of the Month, free to the public, where any and all can come and create.
Here I will be sharing about this series of work I am creating in this self-directed Home residency program. More on this event can be found here:
