Arty Places 2011 #6

One of my "new" pieces... see below 
Blog post #6 in the series of Arty Places 2011....   Newcastle Civic Park became an arty place yesterday for the annual Art Bazaar where over 100 artists including sculptors, painters, embroiderers,potters, jewellers, print makers, photographers come together with about 8000 people looking  learning and buying. Yesterday the weather was perfect.  Here are a few of  the images that for me captured the colour, energy and excitement of the day.

During week, I finished a few pieces I started at the Canberra Retreat. I have slightly modified a technique taught by a talented friend, Kathy Geurts from Studio Amara. These cuffs have a focal piece made of stamped and painted plastic. Thanks to Kathy who showed me her technique, I finished six of these for Christmas gifts. 

Another busy week leading into Christmas, and December birthdays.... 
Happy Birthday to our granddaughter who will be two years old on Tuesday. 
( the story behind this photo ... I bought her an absolutely beautiful dress to wear to her party, but she rejected the dress and preferred the coat hanger!)
