night and day

'Night - misty lake' digital mixed media print
'Day' digital mixed media print

June has been a very busy month settling back in after our trip to NZ. This month I finished off two new pieces created for a Brisbane group exhibition, Foot Square at the Aspire Gallery in Paddington, and won the voters choice award!

This months I put together two new digital mixed media landscapes - night and day. The only limit to entries for the competition was each piece must be under a foot square which produced a fantastic range of themes and works for the exhibition.
The starting point for each work was a mountain range made from torn pieces of security envelope lining then many layers of texture, colour washes and more images were added. For example in 'Night' the moon is a frying pan and the night sky a close up shot of tree bark. 

Each was printed with archival inks onto my favourite acid free 100% recycled consumer paper, then mounted to board for a special edition print. There are limited edition unmounted versions 12x12" and 8x8" available from my shops fine art section and on 

Opening night was a great turn out, so many different styles and ideas. The works were exhibited next to my synthetic scene photography piece too, and best of all they won the voters choice award for the publics favourite work! You'll be able to find these work at the Aspire Gallery Paddington for the next few months.
