|Nirvana Visions Student Art Show 2011|
Well normally this blog is reserved to the stroking of my own ego, but today is a special day where I am going to spend just a little bit of time stroking the ego of our wonderful Art Students that have been attending art lessons with myself and Leigh.
Friday night marked the opening of our first ever 'Student Art Exhibition' showing works from almost all of our students ranging in ages from 5yrs to 85yrs! The works on display will be open to the public until Friday 21st october at the Peregian Beach Hotel, so if you couldn't come along on the opening night, you can still pop in to have a look, maybe even to buy one of these unique works.
Both Leigh and I are incredibly proud of each and every one of our art students, especially Monique who won our 'Golden Brush' award for the student with the greatest improvement in skill, technique and self -ascertion / inspiration over her time with us in our classes.
Thankyou again to those who attended the opening night, we hope that each of you have gained much from your lessons with us and your inclusion in our first ever Student Art Show, all of your works looks absolutely fantastic!
On another note, just to show you that you don't need to attend a studio to do yoga, here is a quick pick of how Leigh and I prepared ourselves for the big night...
We have been vigilantly attending yoga classes at Bikram Yoga and Massage at Noosa. Having only been attending for a short period of time, we can already sing the praises of this torturous but extremely beneficial practise, if you would like to know more, just pull one of us aside for a quick chat about it.
Back to the Easel!
Having recently received interest from Gallery Beneath at Mooloolaba, I am just now finishing off a small sereies of works to be represented by this Gallery. Here is a quick little preview of one of these paintings in its finishing stages, to be sold through the gallery. Please contact the Gallery if you are interested in investing in any of these works (sooner is better than later as a little birdie has told me that the prices of such paintings is about to go up!).
