My Artworks in Anything Goes Exhibition Aug 2016

Had a great response to the Cooktown School of Art Society Inc Anything Goes Exhibition opened on Friday 19th August at Elizabeth Guzsely Gallery 125 Charlotte Street Cooktown.

I managed to complete nine artworks. Four were mini 4 × 3 inch canvases but they still take work to get right.

Find Your Creative Self

This blog features a hobby I love - making art.  Anything creative has always given me a buzz.  I've ignored those who see no value in art or see it as a waste of time.  Art is about beauty.  All the noise of the world dissappears when you are in the zone. Everything seems clearer and the mind becomes focused and sharper.

Everyone will have their own path such as music, performance, hands on or meditation.

If you find your passion do everything you can to follow it.

Prehistoric Cave Paintings

It's hard not to admire paintings found on cave walls and ceilings of prehistoric origin. The earliest from 40,000 years ago but the exact purpose of these cave paintings is not known.They are also often located in areas of caves that are not easily accessible. Some theories hold that cave paintings may have been a way of communicating with others, while other theories ascribe a religious or ceremonial purpose to them.
