We had a very hot day but it was a fun day. I erected a marquee so we had shade for our group that were cutting images from books, inking paper and squeegieing paint onto paper in preparation for their assemblages. We used gorgeous Fabriano and Arches 300gsm paper.
Maxine O’Brien made the two images shown here.
Collage is such a fun and friendly medium.
We have had a very hot hot hot Summer so we are hoping for a little relief from the heat soon. By the way two days ago we had 43 degrees Celcius and overnight did not dip lower than 30 degrees Celcius. Bit hot, just a bit.
Found these at a garage sale. Loved them from a distance. Wasn’t sure what I would have paid for them but $2.50each was terrific. Lucky me. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bs2aBpdFKpW/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=ie6ye4vtolu1
I don’t get into town as often as I should so it was wonderful to see lots of new shops and businesses opening up. On line shopping has it’s place but seeing new things that you might not even think of looking up on line is a great way to go.
I only went to Melbourne Central Shopping Centre, the Emporium and David Jones food hall. David Jones food hall sounds really fancy but its not. They have great food there which is eaten at communal tables. I was on my own and met a great couple that were visiting from Brisbane. I gave them some tips on what to see and they gave me their enthusiastic and friendly company while I was taking a break with a coffee and an apple and walnut cake big enough for three people.
I have not done very much wood carving recently and I am just a novice but I have posted a picture of a sweet little girl – more painting and less carving.
Wishing you all a very Happy New Year for 2019.
PS I am missing the snow that WordPress magically makes fall over my posts in December.
It’s not a big area around Alphington with only 13 (diverse) artists participating. See Alphington Studios facebook site and or Alphington Studios Website where you will find lots more information about all the artists. More pictures from me on Instagram: annewarrenart. The beautiful fine tapestry work is by one of this year’s guest artists Joy Smith.

Hope to see some of you at this very special event this year. We have thirteen artists including some special guest artists exhibiting. You will see my collage and my still life paintings plus from everyone else you will see either sculpture, jewellery, tapestry, textiles, glass, ceramics, mosaic, drawing and more. I hope you will come along with a friend or a neighbour and take a stroll around Alphington to see us next weekend. All artwork will be for sale.

I have just returned from a wonderful trip to Canberra for the Opening of my Solo Exhibition – Mergence. I loved Canberra including the National Gallery, National Portrait Gallery, Floriade, Arboretum, Glass Making Factory/Warehouse, Market, quirky Kendell Lane, Little Istanbul and numerous restaurants for delicious food.
The workshop I conducted was at the Arts Centre which backed on to the lake, so we dragged our chairs outside and had lunch with a view. Beautiful time. Great people. x
I hope more people will come to see the artwork. It is 3D collage assemblage.
Mergence was my response to an umbrella title Entropy. Everything fragments, everything disintergrates. My selected subjects fragment and merge, histories merge, people merge, animals merge. I would like to think that they successfully merge and are not too surreal to imagine. A fisherperson becomes part fish part person. Someone that loves their house becomes part person part house.
