Hi PB family, I just thought I would let you know that I have my last 6 pieces in at the Stationmasters Art Gallery in Strathalbyn South Australia. We have a Sala Exhibition that has the whole state involved. All the galleries have a Sala exhibition going through the month of August. Ours starts tomorrow with the official launch on Friday. I am like a cat on a hot tin roof at the moment. Ours is a small country town gallery but it is so exciting to think the public are going to be seeing it all.  :painting:

Zilpa, that is fantastic!!!  Congratulations!!!  You are a very talented artist.   :flowers: You can show those beauties with pride.
I just went to your gallery to refresh my memory as to what you've done.  I missed the seascape painting with the children.  I love it!   :smitten:
What a great way to plan the placement of items/figures in a painting.  ...learned it from Nolan I'm a thinkin'   :)
Tell us all about your experience with showing your art.

Must be very special to get the feedback of people who are at an exposition.

 :thankyou: Germa, yes it was very exciting. It would be nice to sell some but for me it is a hobby and more about getting it out there for people to see and hopefully enjoy.

Groetjes Zilpa

Hi all, I just have to brag and let you all know I have sold my little Gouache painting. Not bad for a piece that started life as an experiment. :2funny: It is my first one sold in an exhibition so I am over the moon. :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
