The last week has been busy. And I had my birthday! As my middle daughter said, 'Mum, 21 is so young.'

As mentioned in my last post I was one of the 70 shortlisted artists for the Tattersall's Club $20,000 Landscape Award. I did not win but there's always next time! However, I think my painting looked great at the exhibition in the Club.

There is a chance for the public to see all the paintings as they have been moved from the Club to Waterfront Place in Brisbane. They will be there for two weeks from Monday 17 September. Or you can view them [plus what seems an expanded list of paintings] @

Also, my exhibition at Doggett Street Gallery is just around the corner opening October 12. Your invitation is @

As I have mentioned before I will be donating %9 of sales proceeds from my exhibition to War Child Australia Here's an example of what can be done with, what to us is a small amount of money. Did you know that $40 will cover the costs of kindergarten for one child for two weeks in Herat, Western Afghanistan where around 60 children live in prison with their mothers? War Child collects these children in a mini-bus and takes them to kindergarten where they have the chance to play and socialise with their peers, receive a hot meal and have their clothes washed. I have other examples which I will write about over the next few weeks. I really hope that as I sell my paintings those people who buy them feel excited about what they are helping to provide.

The painting above will be in the exhibition. Joyful Praise gouache on paper 53 x 62 cm framed.
