Brown cardboard and packaging tape.

Winter seems to be a popular time for art competitions and exhibitions in Queensland, with quite a few in June and July.  Perhaps it is directly related to the beautiful winter skies and tourists visiting the regional areas.   At any rate, I seem to be in a whirl of packaging tape and cardboard at present.

Tuesday, I collected Carmen and my paintings from the Moreton Bay Art Awards. Upon collecting our art work from the Pine Rivers Art Gallery, I was very pleased to find that I had received a merit award for  ‘Ubirr escarpment – NT’ which I featured in the April post.  While there is no monetary gain, it is nice to hear that the judge at least had a considered look, while judging the exhibition. It gives me the drive to continue on with the packaging tape and cardboard routine of sending work off to various parts of Queensland to be hung in competitions and exhibitions.

Yesterday, I posted this work ‘View from Ubirr Rock – NT’ (pictured below), to Stanthorpe for the Stanthorpe 2018 Art Awards. I was delighted to have been selected this year as it is the third year I have entered, but first time to have been selected. A win just to get my work on the gallery walls, so I am happy!

Still packaging though and this next one is off to the Mackay Art on Show Awards for 2018.  So it has really been a week of cardboard and packaging tape for me.

Cheers,

Joanne
