I had to pull out all the stops to get this one in on time and it was a last minute rush as I forgot the due date.The theme for the competition is an impression of Margaret River. This one is called 'View from the garden - Margaret River'. I'm hoping all my friends will pop in to view the exhibition at Mitre 10 this month and vote of course.

|Margaret River Sojourn|
A creation inspired by the visit of overseas friends.
SOLD! at the 2012 Reader's and Writer's Festival exhibition held in the Foyer Gallery.
My favourite bead is the abalone shell with it's mother of pearl sparkle and the beach scene photo bead. It's also got the last of Grandma Darnell's pearls. Those parrot feathers are a devil to hang.

I've had another go at painting my favourite little blue wren and here it is. It's titled 'That's not your nest!' The nest belongs to another little bird family from my friend Jenny's garden.
I've used acrylic and felt pen over a collaged background using wine labels from a French bottle we had the pleasure of recently, a Cape Mentelle and a Little Creatures neck label. Don't worry, I didn't drink it all at once!

The Vasse Art Award is on until Saturday 21st April and is open 10 - 4 pm daily at the Vasse Primary School. This is my 2nd prize winning entry and I'm still on cloud nine from such a wonderful surprise.I've used redgum sap over acrylic paint in the background on a stretched canvas. I usually like to use a piece of found wood but was playing around with alternatives to meet the requirements for the Arts Margaret River reader's and writer's festival exhibition that is coming up in May. I think the sap works okay.
