SEA CHANGE - The story behind the exhibition - APRIL 2021!

Posted by Caroline Valpied on

In January 2020, after a full year of painting and planning, I held my second solo exhibition and that's where I met the talented Tim Freeman. Tim paints landscapes, but while mine could be described as fairly classical, Tim reduces the landscape to flat shapes creating striking, modern artworks. I love his work! 

We followed each other on social media for the next 6 months or so and as I flew into full flung panic over COVID-19 and what it would do to my art business, I asked him to consider a joint exhibition with me. Good idea. Scheduled for April 2021...with Nov-Jan being my busiest time of year. Maybe not such a good idea!

Like all things though (when you put in the effort), it's working out. I scheduled myself to paint one painting a week from 1st Jan to end of February. Done. It's quite stressful working this way, but I've always been good with deadlines. So 8 paintings plus 2 small ones from 2020. Tim will show ten too.

 

If you're wondering how I work with a three year old...the short answer is - I don't. He's in daycare a couple of days a week and in kinder some mornings. I paint during those hours.

And where I paint...well, you won't see any pictures of that! I paint at the end of our garage, shifting my chair to avoid the whipper snipper, sniffing the delicious aromas of damp cut grass from the lawnmower, turning up the music to drown out the hum from the beer fridge! 

But I LOVE IT! I love all of it...taking photos out and about, getting excited about them in front of the canvas, promoting my work on social media, talking to kind people at the summer markets, sitting in my space in the garage, mixing colours, making magic. Don't get me wrong, there is a point in every painting where I get stuck, don't know where it's going...and running your own business is HARD, but it's all worth it and I do know how lucky I am.

So thanks Tim for agreeing to this exhibition, and like me, creating your paintings in record time.

Thanks everyone for supporting us artists as we bring more beauty into this world.

I hope you can come to our exhibition!

  • I still can’t thank you enough DR BEN, My lover left for a younger lady because i was unable to give birth due to PCOS, I was so devastated i was lonely i cried a lot i even tried taking my life, I want to thank DR BEN for the great thing he has done in my life , he brought happiness back to my life, I never believed in spell casters until my life fell apart when my lover of 6 years decided to call it quit almost when we wanted to get married. I was so emotional breakdown to the extent i could not do anything reasonable again, after 2months in pain before a friend of mine introduced me to a spell caster online called DR BEN I was introduced to a true spell caster called (DR BEN ) In less than 48 hours i saw wonders, my lover came back to me and my life got back just like a completed puzzle, and after 1month later we got married and it was just like a dream to me because i thought i had lost him forever.

  • I was depressed some Months ago due to how frustrating it is dealing with bad credits, but reaching out to HACK VANISH via Phone: +1 (747) 293-8514 and Email: HACK VANISH (@) GMAIL. COM gave my life a new meaning, after I found him credible through positive reviews I read on a credit blog, in a twinkle of an eye, this great hacker got my credit score restored from 509 to 784 across the 3 major credit bureaus, all evictions and repossession has been wiped off, my LexisNexis and Chex system fixed respectively, to my greatest surprise, some days later, I received an E-mail confirming the approval of my pending loan application. I can confidently say 2021 was an exceptional year for my husband and I as we are proud owners of a new home and a brand-new SUV courtesy HACK VANISH, I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a genuine Hacker.

  • I want to share with you my testimony of how I joined this great organization of the new world order, Really I was so poor in my life that I was almost close to death, i tried many times to join but all was in vain, whereupon I was facing fake people who were claiming to be agents . They ate my money without helping me out there. I totally lost hope. But because i was interested and focused on my dream, I continued trying there I meet another person who told me he will help me out still i didn’t trust him at all because of the first pain i passed through,he still also asked me to send him money there i got scared but with time he sent me his membership id card,trust in him little and i accepted to send him money, but what amazed me is that immediately after sending him money for initiation items, i got initiated within 2hour onlines and i receive my $1,000,000 directly to my account there i trusted him more and he is the only agent i trust because he helped me seriously. So my friend if you want to join contact him through whatsapp + 2348180828544
