380 Cranes.... next week I will reach the 400 mark!
This week the back grounds used were my shirt collar and skin, the armrest on Grandma's chair, my dressing gown, the heater, bed sheets, inside of a glass, a light shinning through a glass onto butchers paper, the inside of a plastic bag, sandpaper, the inside cover of a notebook, the outside cover of a notebook, the window in the door with the sun going down, the credits of a movie, bananas and yogurt on bread, my drawing, a felt scarf, a toy car, some garlic, the dashboard of my car and my new knitted gloves.
This week Sean and I went and saw "Edge of tomorrow" @ Wallis cinema in Mitcham. AWESOME movie, I love it, I want to watch it again. This crane I left on the table in the foyer of the cinema. Whenever I leave cranes in random locations I want to stay and watch how people react and engage with it. But I didn't. If you found it I would love to hear your thoughts/feelings about it.
I had a day off from markets on Saturday, I spent the day drawing one of the commissions I had on my books to do. It is an awesome drawing and I will share it as soon as the client has given it to her mum.
On Sunday Mum and I attended Meadows Country Market and it was a great day. Mum did me a massive favour and measured all 99cards... So this week I tick over 100 original artworks in around about 1 year. Not a bad effort.
This week we met Melinda from reincarnate and one of her scarves is featured in
photo 376. Melinda has just started attending markets with her felt creations. We also featured one of Richard's cars in 377. He and his wares are in attendance at Meadows (2nd sun) and Stirling Markets (4th sun) each month. Hopefully in Spring you will be able to see me in attendance at Stirling Market as well.
Image 378. stars garlic organically grown by Ruth who with Tyson runs the Meadows Market. Ruth and Steve grow a variety of fruits, vegetables and meat on their farm Yerelina. You can find Ruth selling food and produce from her farm at Meadows on the 2nd sun and Adelaide Hills Farmers Market in Mt Barker every saturday (except the 2nd sat).
The last two photo of the week were taken while making pie with Mum. I went for a quick trip to get some more ingredients and I left number 379 on the self serve check out at the local IGA. From my car I saw the attendant pick it up. I wonder what happened to number 379 after that. Will 379 make it to the exhibition, or not?
380. Handmade is the best - Mundawora Alpacas. The background for this image is my new pair of gloves made by Jan Bentley from Mundawora Alpacas.

Until next week may all your cups be delicious and all your cranes fly free. Make sure you register your email if you found a little bit of luck (a crane) or would like to attend the exhibition in approx 1 years time. Register here.
The exhibition will probably in March 2015 during the fringe festival. I just need to find a venue. If you have any suggestions for an awesome place to hold my exhibition, PLEASE let me know. As time is a constant thing I need to start planning the exhibition so IT WILL ACTUALLY HAPPEN. Here are this weeks images.
If you have found one of these cranes please keep it until march 2015 when you will be asked to bring it to the exhibition opening night, register your email address HERE so I can send you an invite to the opening night of the exhibition. So your crane can be placed into an artwork at the exhibition.
