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.

Below is an image from the archives. I am working in digital right now but still developing so can’t show you. I will call the work visible invisible which is something that can happen with age, ethnicity, gender etc.
Digital images from Smith Street shops.
I took these photos and then photoshopped them into these fun images. Mai was shopping for fruit so she has the whole shop and more on her shoulders now. Doug was at the pub and got a little clumsy. Just a little bit of fun playing with scale and of course photoshop and some drawing. They are around A5 size ink jet prints limited edition (only 5). I have a few more Smith Street shopps being carted around by people.
Preparing for next weeks art exhibition ‘Now and Then’
Whenever I exhibit with the Out of the Box Artist group there is usually something extra, something collaborative or similar made by each of the artists. This year we all passed on to others in the group some hand painted or treated paper pieces. Below is my little patchwork country collage piece on board.
I have approximately 8 artworks in this exhibition.
Official Opening next Sunday 8th October, 2-4pm.
Digital Fantasy and Mixed Media happenings.
I am continuing the pencil drawings over the abstract painted backgrounds and here are two new ones. If you are observant you will see that I drew variations of the same plant which is something I don’t usually do.
I was Stupid, Stupid, Stupid when I did the blueish one on the left because I prepared the background about two weeks ago and drew the image only two nights ago and the next day started searching for the one I had started with, the one that everyone on social media was liking alot. Couldn’t find it for ages and then turned over the picture below and realised that I had painted and drawn on the back of it. Stupid.
Mason my grandson has been placed inside one of my surreal collages ‘ Friends with Dogs’. Number 8 of 12 I am making for him.
By the way I am still working on the new yellowish one and it’s getting better.
A Christmassy surreal and funny image.
The beautiful little reindeer child is image Number 6 of 12 Images I am making for my Grandson’s first 12 months.
Just added a little still life I made a year ago (sold).
Oh and it’s going to be 35 degrees Celsius on Christmas day and yes we will still be having hot lunches and dinners anyway because of tradition that has become part of our Australian culture. But don’t worry about us as I’m sure there will also be ice and cold drinks and icecream and beer and wine etc. etc. …
Alphington Open Studios this weekend
I would like you to know that the Alphington Open Studio weekend will be on this weekend Saturday 26th – Sunday 27th November 11am – 6pm.
I like stripes and zebras in digital collage.
My November digital collage for gorgeous baby Mason (almost five months old now). I was inspired by his top.
I found this description of Zebras that I like and wish for Mason –
Those that come into contact with the zebra find it to be a powerfully loyal and intelligent friend.
Small scale still-life painting with pink vases.
Plus a picture of my grandson Mason.
He was always going to be a bee in Spring.
My baby grandson’s third of twelve digital collages. He was always going to be a bee this month of September which is Spring in Melbourne. He has been a superhero, an olympic swimmer and now a bee. Digital imaging, photography, collage and lots of love.
