Adrift @ Oar

 I have been in love with a space at @oar 

The Old Auction Room in Albany, Western Australia

I could not resist taking up an opportunity to use a space in the building to place my art on the walls for a couple of weeks. The vintage finds are a treasure trove and a great place to visit weather you live in Albany or are visiting.

When we have visited Albany we have usually come home with something from the store. The most recent acquisition was a hand made old canvas kayak.

My husband has a thing about kayaks, he has a beautiful skin on frame kayak he made at the Tasmanian Wooden Boat School. There is another ply design being made in the workshop. So we decided to combine my art with his kayaks when we participated in the use of the space at Oar.

My Art and handmade gifts are made in our studio in Margaret River.

The Artist and The Carpenter have a few projects we are getting stuck into 

My husband also makes handmade wooden doors.

Adrift during Covid

 A Pelican emerged during covid. It all started with a day in January with my Grandson.

My husband had helped him make a little wooden boat in the workshop.

We spent a beautiful day on the river and he played and imagined for most of the day. This was pre-covid.

When we were unable to see each other I spent a lot of time thinking of this beautiful memory.

I decided to draw a sketch of him and I put a pelican in the boat.

I then had a dream of watching Pelicans close up and walking along the Rivers edge.

When we were allowed to get out and about again, I spent a lot of time taking photos of Pelicans. 

Along came a painting full of immense connection and I absolutely love the result.
