My painting demo on TV (in Australia)



Just a quick post to say that I will be on TV on Sunday night (Eastern Australian Time +10), painting  a view of the harbour from Lavender Bay. The show is called "Colour in Your Life" and it is on Free-to-Air  Channel 4ME at 6.30 pm But you can watch it (now or anytime) from the Colour In Your Life web site: http://www.colourinyourlife.com.au/tv-show/item/264-shirley-peters

The Traverse


I have been retouching this work that I started in 2010. It was spotted on my web site, and requested by email. It's Murphy's Law that if you remove only some paintings from their stretchers and roll the canvases for storage, one of these paintings will be chosen for viewing by a client!! So I stapled it back onto a stretcher, and delivered it to the new home to see if they liked it. They did, so I fetched it back, retouched the paintwork to my now higher standard, and it's ready to be professionally framed.  I really like the subject, as it is where I used to ski in Perisher, NSW. So glad that it is going to a new, stylish home.

Size: 150cm x 95cm (approx) Oil on Canvas. Sold.

30 minutes of fame!!


"Colour in my Life"



Here I am being filmed by a TV production company 
that makes the "Colour in Your Life"  TV Series. 
My episode will be aired June 15th 2014. 

Initially I was going to be painting in our boat: but it ended up being too small for the crew, so I arrived and left via the boat, and painted on the shore. It was fun chatting to the host, Graeme Stevenson, while I was painting. But, I have no idea how it will turn out!
