What a wonderful month it has been. Now that I am in the final weekend of my Ode To Daylesford Exhibition, I can start to sit back, relax and enjoy what has been a very encouraging and successful show.
Thanks to everyone who came along to the gallery, to the people who purchased, to those who showed interest in my work, those who enjoyed some tea, sipped some Passing Clouds wine, and stopped for a chat.
It has been a wonderful space to be for the month and I have enjoyed the time it has given me to work in a different environment, be creative, and take stock of life in general.
One of the great things that has come out of the exhibition preparation is a brand new She-Tea range inspired by Daylesford, and the paintings in my exhibition. It has been really enjoyable to transfer the paintings onto the new canisters, adding more detail to each work, dotting landmarks in backgrounds ,and linking a tea range to an actual place, my home.
I thought you might enjoy seeing some pictures of the new range dotted amongst the artwork that is featured on the canisters. It’s lovely to be able to tie these aspects together so firmly.
With regards to our teas, they are all organic and sourced from a fair trade plantation in Sri Lanka. Each tea blend is housed in a biodegradable pyramid bag and the Daylesford Organics range will be available for purchase from September 1st.
(if you haven’t already been in to the gallery, come along if you are in town this weekend – 1 Camp Street, Daylesford)
I am taking bookings for commissioned paintings now until the end of the year and am then planning my second annual solo exhibition in 2013. I’m thinking of a cafe theme…we will see!
Thanks for spending some time reading my post and looking through the photos, and please let me know if you would like to commission a painting, or purchase any of my available works.
