This weekend I visited the Exhibition of Ro Bruhn and Patsy Worledges work...it was fantastic! Dot, Selda and I braved a bleak old Saturday morning down in Melbourne, and Ro and Patsy gave us the warmest welcome to their exhibition and their art was so uplifting (well worth trudging out in the bleak Melbourne weather). If anyone is in the Glen Waverley area in the next two weeks make sure you drop in and see this exhibition, these two ladies have such beautiful art on display. The exhibition finished on the 2nd October. The picture below was taken of Ro at The Highway Gallery on Saturday. The picture below is my work in progress for my online class with Suzi Blu.... yes, they have bodies (albeit a bit slimmer than I anticipated....I dont know what happens sometimes). I have started my background with the stamping, but you wont recognise it next time you see it as it now has more stamping and a colour wash. Looks quite a bit darker now as I felt it was looking a bit bright. Next week, should be just about finished (I think... I dont know what else Suzi has up her sleeve for us).
And.... the stitchery. The picture below is of a little needlecase I stitched this week for a monthly swap I am involved in. I am to send to one of the girls in our group who has a love for wool (and I hope fabric), I hope this little tactile piece will appeal to her.
I enjoyed sitting and stitching...seems these days I like to have a little stitchery on the go. Lovely to sit in the lounge in the evenings with the family and still be able to create. Hand stitching can be so relaxing and therapeutic. The picture below is of the back of the needlecase.
Have an enjoyable week my arty friends.... have fun stitching, painting, creating!
