Shortlisted for Victoria Cancer Council Arts Award

Hi, Friends, good news! My still life work, "Alive or Dead" is shortlisted for Victoria Cancer Council Arts Award 2013.  
The final judging will be held at Cancer Council Victoria on the 24th of September, next week. Shortlisted work will be on display at the Arts Awards Exhibition in Melbourne from the 20-26 of October 2013. 

Each artist submits a short statement on work.


Alive or Dead
Are flowers in a pot alive or dead? Balance between life and death is vague, because they are “inseparable two in one.”  My two friends were gone from cancer, but certainly they live in us. It’s very sad when people we love and cherish are taken from us. But it forces us to enjoy the present, make the most of it and move on. The grevilleas show how much they live each moment fully.

Each moment and everyone is shining in my life.
Today, I saw my most admiring and best known Australian picture book author on a uni campus. We had a wonderful time. I never expected her comments, but she happily looked at my ongoing work and generously gave suggestions. "Do you have more?" she asked me! No, I left them all behind, but I had some life drawings. The lady encourages me so much, saying, "Invite me your book launch at uni!" at good bye. Yes, certainly!

One more good thing was I donated uni my educational picture book designed for children's literacy research. It was very nice to see my familiar librarians. The author, the librarian and I enjoyed a chat.
Ah, nice! I felt each second shining.

I'll work on the project!
Friends, Happy Painting!
