Maldon Art Walk 2019

The Maldon Art Walk coincides with the Castlemaine State Festival.

The work of local artists is displayed throughout the town.

Here is a small sample of the work on display.

This year’s theme is ‘One Person’s Trash is Another Person’s Treasure’. Maritsa captured the theme well.

Glen White partially covered this shop window with old record covers.

I would have liked to photograph more of the art works but the reflections of the shop windows made photography too difficult.

Cheerfully assembled,

Silken petals glimmering in the early morning sun,

At home on waste ground

Sustained only by meagre offerings from summer’s skies

and Roo Poo.

This group of hollyhocks growing on a hillside near the old Castlemaine tip are a surprising sight. Perhaps they are the remnants of an old garden. I took these photographs in early 2015.

Mixed Media: Fantasy

DSCN2534I created this picture at a workshop conducted by Ann Bidstrup of Heart Art.

The picture is on canvas and combines paint, fabric, threads and beads which were painted, fused, glued and stitched.

I think it is a sunny, happy picture.
