Trail Notes February 24

This past week I have focused my painting on a portrait of my daughter. I have struggled to really capture her in paint and this time it seems to be working much better. I have finished the water themed work which will be for the Waterbrook Art Exhibition with the theme ‘Inspired by Water’. The exhibition will be held from Feb 27th to March 1st (this weekend) at ‘ Waterbrook, Yowie Bay. 19 Wyralla Rd Yowie Bay NSW’. I will be delivering my work tomorrow.
