For the past few weeks now, the TAFE students have been exhibiting some of our artworks in an outdoor gallery, in the main stretch of town. It's a wonderful long wall, fancifully decorated and it lights up some amazing colours at night. I've managed to get 2 of my pieces into the exhibit, Patrick the OOAK polymer clay doll and "Hume" my sunset painting. My painting shares a space with some black wire sculptures but Patrick gets a window all to himself. :)
In the meantime I've been crazily finishing TAFE assignments, working on art commissions, liasing with a stainless steel factory (woops, that's part of a surprise), working on a doll for a competition AND sorting out my studio as we may have a guest staying with us soon!
The local Dog Rescue is in dire need of some volunteers to foster some dogs that will otherwise be put to death. Because the Dog rescue do not have their own shelter, they can only rescue dogs from the pound when there is a foster carer ready. Recently there's been an influx of puppies into the pound, and it's so heartbreaking. I have raised my hand to taking care of one of them; and if my place is found to be suitable, I will be getting a foster dog!
Puppy-proofing a house full of crafts is no easy task however...
