Mixed bag on Friday

I'm still doing short bursts of activity; and even though it is Friday I'm not yet in a fit state to get down and dirty in the garage-studio. However aspects of art life continue to tick over. A couple of older works that are made from recycled encyclopaedias and year books are to make their way to Maroochy Art and Ecology Centre to be part of the Sunshine Coast Council's Treeline exhibition called Tread Lightly. Fiona is one of the featured artists in the exhibition.

I will be send Quiet Transition and Leaf Cascades as part of the exhibition set up on 12-13 June.

And the work Ken Munsie and I collaborated on, Flowing Words, will also be installed in the gardens as part of the exhibition.

I have also had the opportunity to put a few more pieces up in the shop including seed pods and a cluster of smaller leaves.

So still thinking and ticking away artistically.


  1. "Tread Lightly".... "Quiet Transition" ..... There are messages everywhere Barry. Glad you are still being careful. I bet there are a lot of good ideas brewing while you are recuperating.

  2. So good to know you are getting back into things slowly but surely, B. I didn't think anything could keep you down for long! Sending much love to you and F.

  3. Glad you're makin' small step. BTW checked out your shop.... impressive. I need to do that - maybe I'd sell something other than just at shows.... But that's the part of this business i hate. Have a great weekend! :) :) :)

  4. Take it easy Barry. We don't want any hiccups on the road to recovery.

  5. Sounds like you are being careful during recovery - which is a very good thing. Glad to see that you are feeling a bit better - and am looking forward to seeing you get back into the garage-studio when you are fully well. Take care...

  6. that joy to know that you feel better now, your leaves are pure art, and I like a lot!

    thanks and have a nice day!

  7. everything looks wonderful.
    wishing you both a fabulous show.

  8. So good to see you exhibiting. Just as long as you take it easy. I like the sound of you thinking and ticking away artistically.
