Dawn’s abstract wins prize
A win for an abstract painting in the Hydrocryl Prize in Ozartfinder
Dawn had a win with her painting in OzArtFinder, an Australian website for artists in the contemporary and abstract section. It is good to see Australian art websites that support local artists and another one in particular, Bluethumb has been selling a lot of Dawn’s art to Australians.
In reviewing Dawn’s artwork, Ron Reynolds commented “Shrouded Cloisters is a moody introspective painting, limited palette of blacks and greys and shapes that are fixed and others moving.” (http://www.ozartfinder.com/news/hydrocryl-winners/)
I’ve been working hard to get back to a place, where I left off after my 2008 honors year. Gestural line, making Marks and seeing where they lead me. It’s not easy starting with nothing, but I love it when ideas come in and through the process of creating. And I’ve been honored to have good feedback on this one and am determined to stay on track now, God willing.

Understanding my paintings through Kandinsky’s concept
I have been busy with a commission, portraits that are to be a surprise, but this is Mondays work, couldn’t wait to get back to painting. Don’t know if I should mess with it now, I have a tendency to lose it and It has some good reviews which gives me confidence.
Been advised to read Kandinsky’s “point meets line”. ( thanks Deborah ), and if I have interpreted correctly, learned that there is painting for painting’s sake, which I do and that you can have a non-objective painting. I take that 2 ways, not an intended reality and that it doesn’t matter if it has no meaning in that one can paint spiritually. The only time I can paint anything that I think is worthwhile is when I have prayed so I guess that’s what I’m doing.
Two new paintings are added today, the first “Walk in the City ” has been reworked, It wasn’t complete and realizing why I finally got around to it.
The second “Afterglow” has many layers of mixed media and acrylic being an experimental piece in which I learnt a great deal while enjoying the process.
