Karen Thomas, Blue Banded Bee

Karen Thomas, Blue Banded Bee (oil), 21 May 2020
I have been working on this for some time ... a long overdue wedding present for a friend who lives in the UK. Her nickname is BEE which inspired me to add the Blue Banded Bee for her.  Just what this needed.

 

Angela Morrissey, Expressionist Daffodils II


Angela Morrissey, Expressionist Daffodils II, 24 May 2020
My artwork is inspired by the Expressionist and Impressionist artworks that I saw up close and personal at the Zurich Kunsthaus in 2005. I saw Franz Marc, Claude Monet and Wassily Kandinsky. The bright colours are typical of these styles of art and the black outline typical of Expressionism.

Susie Marcroft, Coffee Cup Rescue 'Reimagined Liquid Amber Walk'

Susie Marcroft, Coffee Cup Rescue 'Reimagined Liquid Amber Walk', 20 May 2020
During the COVID-19 lockdown period I've been saving all the takeaway coffee cups that The Wine Hub serves my 'rescue remedy' in each morning. I get a huge kick out of the artwork hugging those rich aromas and warming crema. Secretly, I hope that each coffee I order comes with different artwork from others I've collected. This drawing collages some of those images from the takeaway coffee cups with my own ink, and pencil drawing inspired from walking my dog (#harryofheathcote) through the liquid ambers.

 

Dale Little, Knots and Folds


Dale Little, Knots and Folds, 28 May 2020
This piece is an experimental one. The background fabric was stitched with knots and bullions and then manipulated to create folds using a traditional smocking technique.

Dr Michael J Leach, The Wind Chimes, 30 May 2020
Michael is a poet, epidemiologist, and lecturer at Monash University, Bendigo. His poems reside in such journals as Cordite Poetry Review and Plumwood Mountain. This poem was inspired by reflections on the phenomenon of sound and randomness.

 

Julie Kala, Poppy

Julie Kala, Poppy, 26 May 2020
Found a great photo of this dog 'Poppy' sitting on a ute on FB so asked the owner if I could paint her. I made up the back ground but everything else is how she is. Just loves to hang out on her 'ute'.

Duffy - Ha Ho Art, Artist & Process Shot, 1 June 2020
I think that I should stop stating that this or this is the last of the Covid series as I have 2 more ideas based on the pandemic, lol.  
This is one that's occupied my lockdown all of last week, it's still in progress with just the hair to do & it is 210 cm high by 190 cm wide, acrylics on canvas.

Dell Winser, She’ll be right mate

Dell Winser, She’ll be right mate, 28 May 2020
This phrase is Icelandic and sums up their way of looking at the world: “It’ll all work out in the end” - or to translate that to Australian: “She’ll be right mate”
