the making of “a walk in the park”…

Art portfolio- my work, Studio news

Oh hi! Just taking “a walk in the park” today with a hot-air -balloon 😉

How are you?

Educational Toy (cotton thread, fiber filling and rubber SOLD

I started working on ‘A walk in the park” exhibition in November 2019, after I received an invitation from the Pretoria Art Association to have a small solo in their Black Box area.

but it was only in January that I started making the ’embroidered rubber balloons” for the show.

At first I was worried that these balloons was looking too much like those whoopee cushions! Do you remember those?

Anyway, I reassured myself that that was just my inner critic talking trying to spoil the fun I was having in the studio….

and then the pandemic happened!

So “A walk in the park” was meant to open on the 29th of May 2020, but with lockdown and everything, the show got postponed until further notice, and eventually the Art Association suggested we open it in September 2020.

Hare-raising thoughts 2019 Cotton thread, fiber filling and rubber SOLD

Postpone it for so long?! What about all the bills to pay? That was indeed a hare-raising thought, and after careful consideration and a talk to one of my dear collectors I decided to host this exhibition myself. Directly from my studio for a change!
