Still working one- handed with most things; shoulder rehab is slow and tedious, but going according to plan (according to the physiotherapist) This little painting done completely left handed; Lady on a Bridge- you may recognise the scene from a Pride and Prejudice movie?
SPECIAL NOTE: if SARAH HALL happens to read this before Xmas, please contact me, as I cannot reply to your email...Cheers, Brian

Brian's Exhibition at Pokokai

I have just finished setting up my latest exhibition of paintings at a shop in Nambour. Called Pokokai,at 65 Currie St. (Nambour's main street), it is a shop full of beautiful furniture and ornaments, which gives the exhibition a warm, homely feel, as if the paintings were hanging in a home room. The Opening is tonight, from 5.30 pm. If you are in the area, come and have a look; the exhibition will be on for the next two weeks.

General clean up of my studio to try and find space to work, and some new 3D or "Anamorphic" art in the back of the old Imperial Hotel in Eumundi, which is now being used as a Gallery and Incubator space for art and new ideas in Eumundi under the guidance of artist and friend Bob Gammage
