wanaka arts society easter exhibition 2015


Here are 3 of my paintings ready to be hung with many others at the Wanaka Arts Society Exhibtion. It runs all this Easter weekend.

The paintings are : Here in the quiet hills, Beloved it is morn and When we come to the end of the day.

I also have an additional painting on canvas in the special section "New Beginings" - After the Rain. And 4 unframed works on paper.

It's always exciting to see my work hung at an exhibition. Especially alongside so many other truly amazing works. And I'm really pleased with how these pieces look framed. Framing is always a nerve wracking process for me, but these came out really well.

I would have loved to have shared more photos with you, but photos are not allowed - I got special permission for this one. So you'll have to go in person if you're around this weekend.
