Going Green Art Competition

I’m so very excited/nervous/pleased to be an entrant in the Drawing Point’s Going Green Competition!

Market Girl - skirt detail

Market Girl - flower bunch detail

The competition is open to only 25 artists and we had to interpret the theme of the comp, being provided with only a 60x60cm canvas and a tube of Atelier Interactive Permanent Green Light (Series 2).
First hurdle – the sheer SIZE of the canvas. This is the biggest area I’ve covered to date and man, was it intimidating!!
Second hurdle – incorporating the theme and colour. Most of my work is really spontaneous, so to have a couple of criteria was challenging. I decided to combine the concept of a “green/eco” type girl with the colour as a support feature. I reckon I pulled it off😉

I have certainly RISEN to the occasion – in keeping with my “word” for this year!
Opening Night jitters are already starting! Here are the details if you want to have a look:

19 April – 12 May 2012
featuring the work of 25 artists

Drawing Point Gallery

Opening Night
Friday 20 April
RSVP 18 April (for catering purposes please)
Ph: (07) 3812 1188

All artworks will be available for sale!!
There will be an overall winner plus a People’s Choice Award but you have to be there on Opening Night to cast your vote.
Opening Night voters will also be in the draw to win a breakfast or lunch for 2 at Cactus Expresso Bar!

I hope you can make it, spread the word, and I will be revealing more of the canvas after Opening Night.
