Pictures for Mother's day at Botannix

My pictures are up at Botannix Yoga Studio & café in Botany.  I went over yesterday and took some pictures of them with customers enjoying a yummy lunch or coffee with the show.

A list of works in the show and prices is available on my website.

The introduction to the show is as follows:

Dear Viewer

Thank you for looking.  I put this collection together to celebrate one of the most important people in our lives - mothers. 

Mine passed away in December 2011, a month shy of her 92nd birthday.  Bonnie Malpas was fabulous.  A classically trained pianist, she raised 10 children (two of us were adopted).  Somehow she managed to keep us all fed, clothed and schooled and in line!   For all of these years she was also following her passion: she played in a touring folk orchestra and taught piano.   It was Mum who taught me the art of living well and living with empathy, and kindness.

Mum loved flowers and birds.  She knew the names of every plant and bird.  As a gardener I have admit she was terrible but not for want of enthusiasm and instilled the love of these things in me.

I hope these pictures make you smile and/or think fondly of your mother. 

If they do, then they have done their job.

Hello Mango Frooters.

It's been a while since I posted but I haven't been too idle;
There is a Mother's day show up at Botannix Yoga Studio & Café, Botany, Sydney - details are on my website here.  The show is on until Sunday, May 12.

Yesterday, the lovely girls from Art Pharmacy came around to interview me and take photos in the leadup to the Art Pharmacy 'City vs Nature' popup show in May.

Here is one of yours truly in front of works for the St Vincent's show which will be open from 4th May 2013.
