Loving digital art again.

I would like to say that I jumped the gun in my last post about a new on line store so I closed it.  I have far too many sites to add another.  I will combine it with Instagram to make it easier.  Just ask me if you see anything you would like or would like more information about.  Instagram annewarrenart or website https://annewarrenart.com

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter and or holiday break.  In Australia we have a few public holidays off on either side of the weekend so most people take a break to go away somewhere nice.  Maybe catch the last of the warm temperature.  We did not go away anywhere but stayed to see the Easter Egg Hunt by Grandson Mason, stayed for the bathroom renovation (bit of chaos without a second bathroom), stayed so that my Chinese student (international student) could transition from here to her new homestay about 10 kilometres away.

Also stayed to support my Son Darcy who is in the middle of a start up company curating beautiful Australia, sustainable products into gift boxes under the name Gertrude and Smith.  Please look him up and follow his journey as he prepares for a launch date.

A view of Christmas 2018

Happy Christmas everyone.

Beautiful Canberra where you can still see the sky from the ground.

No super high rise buildings here. I loved the chunky low rise buildings. Very 60’s.

Paintbrushes needed for Northern Territory.

This would be for Australia only as we have just three weeks to collect and deliver them.

Can you help out a remote community in the Northern Territory?
Paintbrushes old and new needed
Gurindji Project Paintbrushes.

The Gurindji people live in the remote Northern Territory town , called Kalkaringi, 800 kms south west of Darwin, nearest biggest town is Katherine 400 kms away.

A converted small power station was refurbished to become an Art Space from the proceeds of selling the book “From Little Things Big Things Grow” which is the story based on their Freedom Walk 50 years ago this August. Penny Smith an Art teacher from Queensland went to help set the Art Space up five years ago and is still there. A call has gone out for paintbrushes, new or used. My friend Galia will be travelling there on 5th August to deliver them.
This is a very small community of 600 people with very few facilities/materials and or things to do. Well done Penny Smith you are amazing.
Delivery of Brushes
I am happy to receive them here in Alphington (annewarrenart@gmail.com) for address. Another drop off point is Cambridge Studio Gallery in Cambridge Street Collingwood.  You can look their Gallery hours up and deliver there if it suits better.
Timeline: Just three weeks. Must pass them on by Monday 25th July.
Thankyou and happy hunting – Anne Warren

Building a tent with collage.

I have been holding very small (2-4 people) collage and still-life painting workshops in my studio on the first Tuesday and the first Thursday in each month.  Keep me in mind for the future and if those days do not suit I can do private one on one workshops.  Email me if you want to know more.

The images above are of the collage play that I tend to drift into late at night.

The still-life with pears are painted using some paint left to me by art students.  Simple but sweet I think.

The little village is a first entry into a visual diary for this year.  I am not a big fan of such things for myself but I thought I would start one and see where it takes me.  The tent was easy and a fun and fantasy thing to do.  As I have mentioned before many of these things no longer exist as it is just play and never glued down.  They may come up in a finished piece one day although it will be a totally different configuration.

Taking bookings for Art Workshops in Melbourne.

Think about taking an art class with me on Feb 2nd or Feb 4th.

My next Still-Life Painting Workshop is on Tuesday February 2nd.  It is a very small class of only 3 people so you get lots of attention and information.  There is a materials list that I would provide for this class.  I have vacancies for the evening class Feb 2nd 6.00 – 9.00pm.

My next Group Collage Workshop is on February 4th 9.30-12.30pm and a later one at 6.00-9.00pm.  I still have some places available in both classes.  The classes will be for beginners, artists interested trying a different approach, those that have taken  a class before that are wanting more direction to consolidate and or make new artwork.  Email me warrener_@hotmail.com.

A few hiccups but fish mobile finished.

I have really enjoyed making this mobile.  Many moons ago I saw a Calder exhibition and fell in love with it.  I mean many moons ago – probably the 70’s and I didn’t even know who he was.  This is nothing like what I saw but the motivation has been there for a long time to make something that moved easily, gently with a breeze.  I kind of fell in to the carving of the balsa wood – the wood has been sitting in my studio for about 10 years.

As someone said to me it is like a collage, an assemblage and I guess that’s right.  The little red beads came off a bracelet, the string was purchased for gift tags, I cannot remember why I bought balsa wood 10 years ago and the finest crochet hook ever made was a tool I had in my kit that I never thought I would ever use (to drag the string through the wood).

I have one or two cuts on my fingers from the blade, lots of sneezing from the powdery dust and grit in my eyes, sanding a beautiful tail and then accidentally breaking it off (a few times) an enormous tangle in the string when I thought I was finished, my husband saying it wasn’t serious art but all that was the negatives that brought me to this humble piece that I had to make.
