Wow I am now up to date with my blogs!
Tomorrow I will be at Flinders St Market I will have my stall set up and my Fabulous mum, Shirley will there to take orders for pet portraits and/or specialised artworks. Or help you pick out some art cards, prints or an original artwork. Or you can also decorate a square for me to use to make cranes out of. While Susanna from Really Useful Pots and I run our Making in the Market session #5 - Making creatures from clay, there are still seats available so come on down and get messy.
On Sunday I will be at Gallery One for the opening of the SALA exhibition Elements that I have 4 paintings in and together are called 5 elements Wu Xing.

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.
