So I’m not participating in November 2019 as I have NO paintings to exhibit – not one! And no gallery to exhibit them at anyway seeing we have sold the house that had an exhibition studio/gallery attached. This is disgraceful state of affairs after a decade of participating in this event year after year. Bugger!
Missed exhibiting at the NZ Art Show in Wellington a few months ago too for the same reason – no finished paintings to exhibit. This too is very disappointing! Not part of the big plan!
Back painting now though in between sitting in the winter sunshine, creating several hundred wire plant protectors to keep the rabbits from eating the newly planted Grissilinias and Carex Testacea. Apart from the wiry bits, or perhaps even including them, landscape design and development stimulates the creative juices in many different ways – and at least I can do this bit sitting down, with my painting bandanna on to remind me of what I should be doing. Growing Old Disgracefully!
