I'm really excited right now because my artwork is currently on display at the wonderful Pandemonium Cafe in Paddington. My exhibition is called: Retroverts (series 1) Colour Me There! It's the first time that I've displayed my art in public (besides the photos I've previously included here on my blog) so I'm a little nervous. I'm more chuffed about it than nervous though, so all good. Pando's is a much loved & popular 70s style retro themed cafe in Brisbane. So the exposure will be great & my paintings certainly do look very happy hangin' out on the lime green wall amongst all the ultra cool retro decor. Displayed (& available for sale!) are twelve (acrylic on 8 x 8 inch stretched canvases) colourful & kitsch/retro inspired paintings. The "Doggone Beat" painting from a few posts ago is also included. Anyways, if you live in Brisbane & would like to check out my little paintings, that would be ever so awesome. If you need a little more incentive, Pando's Cafe has a lovely vibe, oh-so-yummy food & exceptional coffee!
Here's a photo of "Doo-Wop-Biddy-Diddy" - one of the twelve paintings from the exhibition.
I've also submitted "Doo-Wop-Biddy-Diddy" to Illustration Friday this week because I thought the topic for this week, "theory" was perfect for her. I was concerned about her pursuing her dreams of being a doo-wop singer. Or any kind of singer actually, due to the fact that she has no mouth. A distinct disadvantage for one who wishes to sing. So I'm hopeful doo-wop girl will find comfort & inspiration in this week's IF topic, because, in theory, anything is possible! Therefore I believe one should always follow their dreams. Regardless of how silly they may seem to others.
Retroverts (series 1) Colour Me There! - 17 Feb - 19 April.
