spring is almost upon us... so saith my peach trees!
I've had one of those nice week's this week..... amidst the huge life upheavals currently being navigated, I received a couple of bits of nice news..... there was of course the delivery of the current issue of sustain magazine...... within the week I also received news that my work has been selected for a forthcoming book on contemporary Australian and New Zealand calligraphy (and given that I submitted virtues and vices I'm MIGHTY surprised that the editors have taken the very brave leap to include me!). The book, being produced by the ASC, is slotted for limited release somewhere near the end of the year.... so I'll let you know all about it when I get my complimentary copy.
The bigger news was (drum roll please) I've been shortlisted for the Basil Sellers Art Prize...... wheeeee! again it's a looooong wait (the award is in October) and I don't hold out any hope of collecting the $15 000 prize (oh, but I can dream about how lovely it would be can't I?) I am however mighty thrilled to be a finalist - and again mighty surprised (I think my face has had a permanent 'HUH?' look to it this week)
