I have some exciting news!

The Lethbridge 10000 Small Scaled Art Award finalists were announced yesterday, and my entry – Truth – has been selected as part of the 2015 Online Gallery Finalists.

You may have seen this line drawing on exhibit at the “Azure Assurances – A Book of Pictured Poetry” Exhibition which was held last year at Aarwun Gallery. You can read more about the exhibition here.

The Lethbridge 10000 Small Scaled Art Award is held annually at the Lethbridge Gallery in Brisbane. National and international artists are invited  to enter this art prize which is Australia’s biggest small scale art prize.

Artists may submit 2D artworks up to 61cm in any direction for entry into the award.
Judging is based on three equally evaluated criteria of creativity, originality and skill with the winner receiving $10 000 prize money.

All finalist entries are posted on the Lethbridge Gallery’s website, on the Lethbridge 10000 Small Scaled Art Award page from which you may purchase the works direct from the gallery.

This is the first time I have entered the Art Award, and with so many fantastic entries, I am pleased to have my drawing amongst the works.

There is one genre that has always been a part of my life and that is drawing. It is my passion that never ceases to provide a constant means in which I am able to explore my artistic desire for expression.

It has the innate ability to make sense of the world when nothing else does and is also one of my most favourite things to do. I alternate between studies which involve intense detailed drawings to works with loose line drawings. It all depends on which creative mood I am in.

From time to time I share these drawings in my blog posts, others can be seen here. My studio is just full of the numerous drawings I have created over time, some of them I would never be able to part with, they are like members of my family. Some have arrived to narrate special emotions, moments or occasions, others for want of a better way to describe it, are purely fun. Do you ever feel that way about your work?

Well, that’s a wonderful start to my week. What do you have planned for yours? I’m looking forward to spending more time in the studio, I’m working on another large scale commission at the moment, I had time to work on it over the last couple of days- what a fabulous way to spend the long weekend! ~ K
