2012 was by far the best year yet for painting and I can’t thank all friends and clients enough for their support. With the commissions and gallery sales there were 52 originals sold last year and add to that the limited edition prints there were over 75 sales, so from the bottom and top of my heart, thank you.
Sales in Cairns are going great guns with a big thanks to Iefje at UnderArt Gallery. The first batch have sold and batch two is now on the walls. I’ve attached the latest bunch and FYI “Follow That Plane” has already sold.
More good news with Retrospect Galleries in Byron Bay offering me another opportunity to display for Artist of the Month this year (date unconfirmed). With a sell out exhibition last year seeing 16 originals bought I’m thinking of putting together at least 20 this time and hoping to exhibit in October. More details to come.
And last but not least, if you like collecting those free postcards from the Avant Card collection you see around the place then keep an eye out for REM White Collar Worker. I submitted the piece about 6 months ago and thought I’d keep it hush until it was definite but Avant Card have just told me that they have printed 29,750 copies and are sending them to cafes, function centres and play houses all around Australia as we speak. And to top it off they even sent me 500 copies of my own which have now become my official business card. You can check my card out at the Avant Card website.
So again thank you all for such a wonderful year and I hope you will continue to follow me on my journey in 2013.
