A Broken Hill Wedding

Friday, June 29th, 2012

One of the things I love most about doing personal commissions is getting the feedback at the end. It’s always a nervous wait for me, not knowing if they will like it or not.

When I love something I gush, leaving no uncertainty as to how I feel. There it is people, I’m a gusher. So when I come across others who gush it MAKES MY DAY!

Now, rewind to the beginning of the story…

Recently I was asked by a kind young lady to paint a commission as a gift for her very dear friends. It was to be a scene of their recent wedding at Broken Hill, and was to include animals they identify with, their pets, and something to represent the future of their happy marriage.

Inspired by the arid setting and all the details, I set to work…

And soon I was done!

She was thrilled with the outcome. Then she gave it to her friends and they loved it too. So this time I got two sets of feedback! THEN, they posted a pic of it on their Facebook, so it got even more nice feedback!!! All gushing with such kind words, my days were made for MONTHS! 🙂

Endless thank-you’s to Megan, Regan and Chris.

Great idea for a show right?!

Acme et al is a gallery in Yarra Glen, VIC, who endlessly support my work. A bunch of genuine, kind, art-wise people, who as you can see, come up with innovative ideas.

Though I’m not a scarf maker, I know many of you out there are very talented with things that be knitty, so I thought you might like to know about this. Not only to see the show, but to submit your own work. There’s only a few days left to enter… So, go on!

Entry details are here.
