Sale and etsy

I was very excited to learn that I sold a piece at the Contemporary Art Society Exhibition on Herring Island, I don't know which one yet but both framed works that went in were quite old. I'm on duty on the afternoon of Saturday the 6th so will find out then. Any Melbourne readers should check out the exhibition, it is on for the next two weekends and you get the Parks Victoria punt over the Yarra from Como Landing, South Yarra. The Island itself is worth visiting, it's a great place for a picnic and there are sculptures all around the island.

My prize from the OWOH extravaganza arrived this morning, it is great thank you Wendy, it is a viscosity printing of Anne of Cleves and you can see how it, as well as the rest of the series, was done here.

I spent several hours over the weekend setting up an etsy shop but I haven't worked out how to get it to show up in my side panel yet, I'll work on that when I get another day, it took me hours just to set up and list five items.

I've spent a fair bit of this morning getting a CD ready to send to Korea for the Paper Road Exhibition, I find I spend so much time on documenting and filling out forms it doesn't leave much time for creating. These are the works I'm proposing for the Paper Road exhibition, you are allowed three entries.

Pardelot Four cyanotypes on kozo with Zoe Culbertson and Celine's Nest cotton paper and mixed plant fibre with blackwood wattle branch and twig.

Dreamcatcher One cane and kozo

I am also helping to plan the first Valda Quick Paper arts Biennial which will be held at the Access Gallery at Bundoora Homestead from 3- 21 November, we had our second meeting yesterday, I'll be writing more here as that progresses.

I should also say that today I posted off the two body books from my post last week to the Mermaid in the Attic so I'll look forward to seeing what magic Christina works on the books. The shell book was bought by Carol, I hope she enjoys it.

Gorgeous pieces Gail, I especially love the little boat (I have a thing for boats too!). Looking forward to receiving your body books...hope my 'magic' does them justice!
