New Horizons – an Art Exhibition

Honoured to be involved in the Marist College Ashgrove “New Horizons” art show.

If you would like to come along, the first session is from 9am to 4pm and all artwork and photography is for sale. The evening session is a chance to meet some of the 25 artists involved. Dylan Jones, a talented and accomplished artist and Marist Old Boy, will give the Keynote. Dylan’s work and the work of all the artist is amazing so I highly recommend a viewing.

The Draney Theatre is located on the lower level of the College. If you access the College via Glenlyon Drive, the Theatre is at the top of the College driveway.

Hope to see you there. Please introduce yourself if you’ve been a follower for some time. I would love to meet you.

“Nelson” and “Verity” are currently 2 of my faves and while it was hard to part with them, I’m sure to be pleased if they find new homes to hang out in.

For the full catalogue and more information click HERE.

I’ve also added a couple more pieces to the SHOP page; one original and 2 that are available only as prints. You can email me for details on those — hello@giovannascott.com.

Until next time…

She Might Drink of Space – a painting

After a very long break from blogging I’m getting back into the swing of things by filming more.

When I returned to work last year, time had been a huge issue. Some gorgeous soul suggested Hyperlapse and it’s embarrassingly quick and easy.

This study began on a prepared collage. I have a drawer full of these for when I have time and opportunity. One thing I have learned in all the courses I’ve taken, is to PREPARE. So when I can only do one thing, I collage a stack of these backgrounds.

For a look into how I work, here are the videos:

I really never quite know how each piece will turn out. This girl’s muted tones and wistful expression has captured my attention. I wondered often when exactly I should stop “messing” with her and am happy I stopped here.

The finished piece is approximately 19x25cm on 320gsm watercolour paper and available for purchase by emailing me hello@giovannascott.com.

Hope you enjoyed my return to blogging and creating!
