From a tree we can build.
First image is a little Character I made as a lucky charm or lucky protector. It’s made of wood, woodcarving, painting, found charms and some other quirky bits. I am making more of these before I decide if I like them enough to keep going. Currently I have a little man in a suit and tie with a mohawk (yet to paint). I do become connected to these little people as my wood carving is pretty limited and very very slow.
Here is a detail from a collage/mixed media series I am making for an exhibition in Canberra in October. I have made several pieces that are merging people, industry, nature etc. Where things start and or finish might be ambiguous.
Art exhibition nearing at Alphington Open Studios at the end of the month.
Just want you to know that the Alphington Open Studios will be on again on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th of November. For more information go to the Facebook Site Alphington Open Studios or to the website http://www.alphingtonstudios.com. You will see information and images from all of the exhibiting artists. Below I have inserted a still life painted image and below that a mixed media drawing and painting. Hope you like them. Please note that I now have a new Website http://www.annewarrenart.com that I hope you will look up for more gallery pictures.
Chicks and Bunnies just for fun and maybe Easter.
Funny rabbits, tough rabbits, spotty chicks, spoons, daisy horses etc. Had so much fun making these. I have just a little bit more to do and then I must stop myself.
The shapes were cut out by scroll saw by Wood Club colleague Klaus. Thankyou.
I will be exhibiting these at Incub8r in Smith Street, Fitzroy very soon, in time for unique Easter gifts. If you know me you will know that they will not be repeated.
Art display at Incube8er in Collingwood.
Now Showing at Incube8r in Smith Street
PS The Summer Workshops held in my Backyard were fantastic and I may have another two in Autumn. Different of course.
Hope you stop by.
Happy Valentine’s collage.
Having fun collaging or really decorating this little wooden jointed dog.
Spoons ready to be picked up and a new group being carved now.
Sold all my spoons at the open studio which was a great success. I didn’t realise that other people love spoons as much as I do. (Actually I like all cutlery that has an interesting design). I have started another little group now. The tiny 10cm spoons are for little ceramic pots of jam or similar and the longer fish spoon is the first baby spoon I have made and is of course for my grandson Mason. They are all made from huon pine which grows only in Tasmania /Australia and as the cutting of live huon pine trees stopped in 1960 they are a bit special. Fortunately there are still cut pieces of timber available around Australia. I describe the scent of this tree as vanilla and menthol. Oh and I just learn’t a great new word to describe what I am carving: treen.
Exhibition at Ian potter gallery is simply brilliant.
My first wood carving sculpture of a bird.
It took lots and lots of hours to make. If anyone wanted to buy it I would sell it for one million dollars. I joke. I decided to make another bird but a little different. I need to learn so much so repetition and refining will help.
This is Frank making stunning work.
Bird sculpture in wood but still learning.
I am still a novice and taking the wood carving sessions very slow. I used a band saw on Friday and felt great. Loved the power. Still working on the bird. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I don’t snap the tail or the beak off. Picture of Mason my Grandson at just under four weeks of age. XXxX
