Sorry! and toot toot :)

I know, I know, I have been a very poor blogger lately. I'm not making any excuses, but I haven't been producing much at the moment, however I do have a new piece on the slab. We have finally finished the new studio and I am so happy, I just need the plumbing now and it will be perfect. I will post some pics in the next couple of days. For those of you who read my blog regularly, you might remember my excitement at having work accepted into the very prestigious Minnawarra Art Award. Well I was just so excited to be hung in this award there was no way I was going to  miss opening night. It was a beautiful affair, the works were hung wonderfully, there was live music, food and lots of champagne (a little too much fun was had by me in the bubbles department!) So anyway, I could have fainted when they called my name out as a major prize winner - $5000 aquisitive prize for 'Habitattered' (above)! I was elated to say the least. The best part is, this painting communicates a very strong environmental message and it will be hung in the office of the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority. The Project Director's words were "Leesa's artwork, whilst controversial, aligns with the MRA's conservation strategy and will send a powerful message to all our Project Manager's and Partners." You can't get much better than that right? :) Cheers
