I am very excited to have a new original painting in the Corner Store Gallery’s group show “Works on Paper”. Opening this Friday night, 16th November the works are currently on view on their online store.
This piece has quite the story. I submitted it for consideration into the show and on Halloween of all days, it got completely ruined by a vase toppling over and smashing on my desk. **Ghosts?!**. I was quite devastated as I had really enjoyed painting this piece, so what was left to do but start painting it again? I spent the evening reworking it, using the ruined one as a reference. I didn’t want to recreate it exactly as I think that can effect the overall quality of the work. The next day I found out it had been selected! So had to confess it what I had submitted was destroyed but am working on a replacement.
Below is the piece that is on show at the Corner Store Gallery. I can’t make the opening, but if you happen to be around in Orange, NSW, please drop in!
