Artist v the Free Market – Beaufort Street Festival 2015

I will be trying to make a profit from my art, by selling it, at the Beaufort Street Festival, this 14 November 2015 in Perth. Similar endeavours have been undertaken by countless artists over the centuries and in most cases lead to failure (to make any money). Despite the unlikelihood of a profitable day, I am using this as an occasion to work on some smaller drawings and show them off on the day. Below is my little drawing triptych "think good thoughts" inspired by the Zoroastrian creed "think good thoughts, speak good words, do good deeds"....

Currently Exhibiting “Paisley Fantasy”

My painting Paisley Fantasy, which is currently being exhibited at the Bayswater Art Awards until 18 October 2015 at The RISE 28 Eighth Ave, MAYLANDS Monday to Sunday: 10:00am - 4:00pm This is a painting of a dear friend of mine, who has left Perth to travel to fascinating lands where these paisleys originate from. Interestingly they  call this one "estampado de bacteria" or "bacteria print" in Spanish. They also call it "Cachemira" referring to the geographic area of Kashmir. Naturally the origins of this design are disputed. http://www.heritageinstitute.com/zoroastrianism/trade/paisley.htm
