Janneka's partner Paul knows one of the artists Mark Barnaville and his scenes of Penrith in charcoal are outstanding:
I especially loved the mixed media pieces from Rhiannon Laman, but then again I'm a bit of a fan of of Mixed Media Art.
We also checked out the Archibald, Wynn & Sulman Prizes ... again so much beautiful art and talent. This year's winning Archibald Price piece was created by Del Kathryn Barton, titled Hugo.
I really loved all of them, but a couple really resonated with me:
Carlo Pagoda, Habit de jardinier - permanent ink on metal &
James Powditch, Ben Quilty, Where is my mind?
I'd forgotten how much I love the art gallery ... so I became a member so I can go more often.
This year is going to be a year of creativity for me ... it helps me feel balanced so I'm going to search for it in the everyday!
