Howdy all,
If your not sitting at home watching the election night telecast then come along to Koala Rocks. 6pm at Newstead railway arts hub is opening night of my exhibition.
I mostly paint rocks but also the odd self portrait koala thing.
If you can or can't come or have to attend your political party party then it would help heaps if you can pledge any amount to help with the shows costs.
Ohh did I say there will be wine ☺

Then again if you pledge on kick start things might differ.

Ohh. That's a shame. I guess you could always come to Newstead and see, but the opening is July 2 so I guess you will be glued to the tele.

Ahh. With international exposure these days I thought a koala is more #Australianart than a Cunningham lizard. Yes I have a gecko tattoo but ears are weird to paint. So rather than do the chop like Vincent my inner me blew them up.

Finaly got there on the last day. Good to see the paintings up all together and they look great in real life. Pretty big show for one man. I loved the rock series, they're really interesting forms, as climbers know. Even one I've climbed with Mic from his extensive knowledge of local obscure crags (I'm swarn to secrecy!). You might not get to see the Koala series in the next show but I found them an intriguing whimsical theme, the expression on one made me laugh. I like stuff that plays with oz icons. Great to have Mic take us through all the paintings. I hope he continues to show and develop both these themes. Can't think of an artist that has a climbers relationship with the landscapes they paint, it certainly brings a different eye.
Good one Mic!
