Hello it's cold.

Nearly Winter in Melbourne Australia but I suppose we shouldn’t complain because we don’t get so cold that it snows. Hope if you are nearby that you are keeping warm and that if you are in the Northern hemisphere that you are getting some sunshine.

I am preparing for a small fundraising exhibition here in Alphington. One of our beautiful artists has Motor Neuron Disease so we are fundraising for MND Victoria. They are only partly government funded so they need public support in order to assist those with MND and their families to cope.

The artwork generously provided is by the artists that come here for classes, myself and by kind artist friends that are also donating. As the event is in my home it is by invitation only (just let me know if you would like to be included).

I’ll post a few pictures of some of the work.

From when I studied at RMIT BA, Drawing.

It has been wonderful going through my life drawing folio and finding some treasures and some trash. This image I would consider a treasure but I can assure you some of them and now in the trash. These were probably warm up drawings of maybe five minutes or so each. I used a pencil on pretty ordinary butchers paper.

From my life drawing folio from a number of years ago.

I’ve been searching for some drawn images from my life drawing folios from 10 years ago. My plan is to combine it with some new media, possibly digital or analogue collage. This was charcoal on heavy watercolour paper and black ink. I miss charcoal and the freedom of working large.
