There is not much time left before our exhibition. I trust that we will have a good turnout and nice weather. The sun just adds such a nice positive spin on all things. We are going to have quite a variety this year, loads of vibrant colour. I must say, I am really feeling more nervous this time, the first time you decide to do something you have no idea what's coming, well the second time you are just more nervous and you know that you have created a certain expectation. I must say painting today, just made me excited all over again.I would never have imagined this would be something that I would do. I paint what I love, what I would hang on my walls. I want my paintings to lift a mood, to make you happy and take you back to that place where you forget all your troubles. Maybe to me, it was my childhood, maybe that's why I love this naïve style. It just speaks to me. We are going to have a wonderful day. I hope that I will see many familiar faces, just pop in and come have a refreshing drink and enjoy our world of colour! Marietjie and I would also expand our Painted Canvas idea, maybe certain upmarket markets. We are even thinking of expanding our business to décor. We would be willing to come into your home, help with a feature wall or two, a splash of paint can do wonders to a wall!

Kalk Bay

SimonetteSeptember 6, 2013 at 7:14 AM Marietjie and I took a drive out to Kalk Bay to find some inspiration and look at the local galleries. We saw some very interesting work. Some more so than others. It made me think about the concept of art and galleries. What makes art appreciated by one and not the other? When does art become a commodity and when is it a beautiful piece to enjoy? I will continue having fun, putting colour and joy on the canvas and hope that this will somehow be recognised. Have a wonderful warm weekend. It seems the Cape Town sun is out to be enjoyed! ReplyDelete

To view some of the work of last year's exhibition go to my webpage at Painted Canvas I am not posting much at the moment because I would like to keep it as fresh as possible for our upcoming exhibition. Remember my work is fun and very affordable, I would love to do as many commissions possible once our exhibition is complete. Please feel free to contact me.
