Bob Boutique show

I have some work on the walls of Bob Boutique at the moment as part of their combined artists Christmas show! I looove this store, it's such an inspiring little place to be. It's full of art, jewellery, clothing and homewares, most of which are made by local artists and designers.

If you are near Bendigo you really should go have a look, the address is 17 Williamson Street (in the Shamrock Hotel building). Shop hours are Monday and Tuesday 11-3, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 11-5, Saturday and Sunday 11-3.

If you can't make it there, the website has an online store with lots and lots of pretty things.

The things you find

I think March was the last time I had some days spare to clean up, it's been a crazy creative year and I find myself happily exhausted and also surrounded by a mess of paper and books. These last few days I feel like I've done nothing but file away paper, putting things into folders and plastic pockets and trying to restore some sense of order.

In the midst of all the cleaning I found this drawing of mine that I haven't thought about in a while. It's not better or worse than anything else I have done, but to me it is very special and I would like to share it.

This was the drawing that started everything I am doing now. At the time it was the first drawing I had done in a while, there are a lot of reasons why I stopped but none of them matter now. Now I'm just grateful that I started again.
