New Greeting Cards Stock

I've finally got around to updating some new greeting card stock on Creations in a Teapot.

There are a mix of designs painted by both my brother, Jacob, and I....

In seems that Jacob has been more prolific than me in recent days....his five designs are on the second row.

Billabong Pirates

These Aussie animals are off searching for buried treasure....or perhaps some early Christmas presents!

This painting closely follows my 'Billabong' series. These works depict the everyday adventures of an assortment of Australian animals.

Painted in ink, gouache and watercolour it's available for purchase at an unusually sharp price (I'm feeling very festive!). If you're interested please email me directly for further details.

Mary Myfanwy's launch 'From a Warm Room'

Christmas is so close I can almost hear the sound of boots down the chimney!

Just a little reminder for the locals of the South West who're still looking for arty gifts, my final festival before Christmas will be this Sunday at the Bridgetown River Park market (providing the weather is good) 8 - 12pm.

Sunday will also see the launch of my sister, Mary Myfanwy's début album 'From a Warm Room', at the Bridgetown Cidery from 1:30 - 3pm. All are welcome :)

The album contains 10 original songs beautifully recorded and arranged by a local studio.

Hope you like the album artwork - can't think who painted it....:)

The Tree of Many Faces....

...And so ends a hectic weekend of markets.

Travelling between two festivals I managed to clock up over 1200km! During that time I dodged one kangaroo and a couple of rabbits while obliterating a population of suicidal bugs and butterflies.

Saturday was an enjoyable day at Denmark market with several thousand people turning out to support the stallholders. Arriving back in Bridgetown at 9pm last night I was up at 2am this morning for an enjoyable market day in Fremantle.

During these two days I managed to knock out a bit of drawing and painting. Denmark and Freo weaved their hippy spell and made me doodle out this rather detailed drawing. Entwined in this drawing are roughly nine personified heads. I say roughly because the more you look at this scene the more faces seem to appear....what is in that Denmark/Freo water??

I’m back in Denmark in the New Year - January 4th. Make sure you pencil the date in your diary

Bring on the Warm Weather!

Tomorrow will see the second last Bridgetown River Park market before Christmas.

I'll be there with my art. After the gloomy weather today I'm hoping tomorrow's conditions will resemble this watercolour's climate a little more....
