Really been that long?

Time goes fast when you have had a baby (pity it doesn't feel like it is speeding fast in the last stages of pregnancy). Anyway, four months have passed like that. I have had moments where I wondered what I had done, and days where I sat in the house unable to leave, but it all calms down after a bit and without any harassing of small person, my little man now sleeps through the night, can almost hold his head himself and is not far from tasting his first spoonful of real food.
Apart from that, Art Pharmacy is coming up, "City Vs Nature" is the theme this time and all the pieces are A5, making them affordable for all (if you have around $200 that is).
Other than that I am preparing myself for Finders Keepers and making lots of horses and other hand-painted creatures and articulated animals... usual stuff at the moment. Have a little bit of time before then, so small beast isn't making me too frustrated yet with getting stuff done.
Art Pharmacy Press Night

Last night was the press opening of the Art Pharmacy Pop Up in Darlinghurst. I had the pleasure of painting monsters on the windows as well as being in the show. I was a little intimidated at first painting them, I started on the Palmer St side to start with and found, it wasn't too bad.
Thursday night is the big opening night with around 250 people who are going to be there. It was certainly good to be able to meet the people I was in the show with and talk to them. Thanks Emily and Emilya for the great experience.
Horses, horses, horses...

I was tentatively asked to make a display for Melbourne Cup for someone who makes hats and although our conversation was brief, I made a couple of horses while I was in the Pop Up the other day. I made a little template, so I could get them done fast if she needed, so we see.

The one good thing about sitting in a shop all day, and having to amuse yourself, is I have found myself finishing pieces that have been lingering on my desk in some form or another. Sometimes they get a complete makeover, like Mr Bird Man here or sometimes it is a little tweak.

I have been enjoying just making monsters again. Simple, splodgy, not thinking too hard, monsters. I submitted these little creatures, amongst their other friends, to the Ohh Dear Pillow Fight competition. Back to the monsters!
