MarshallArtMail August 2011
As you have gathered by now, I have not been very reliable in the newsletter department. My sincere
apologies. This is not because nothing has been happening, it's been because a lot has been happening. At least I
haven't been bothering you too much have I!
It has come to my attention that although I prepared a newsletter in October2010, but forgot to
send it, then again in January 2011, I also forgot to send it...again! Silly silly me. Rather than send it to you
now, if you are interested here it is on my new, unfinished website: www.marshallfineart.com.au
Ron and I each produced a new Australian Light Horse painting, which
was reproduced as prints for the Air and Land Spectacular at Emu Gully in May. Ron's beautiful painting "The
Light Horseman" is on display and available on our Light Horse Art website at www.lighthorseart.com.au
My new painting is not available yet as I have to repaint the bullets in the Boer war bandolier
-fortunately a good friend of ours pointed out that I had painted them too pointy! Now most people would not know
that the bullets were incorrect, but when painting history I like to have such minor details correct, otherwise my
rendition is incorrect. So everyone will just have to wait for a while until I get around to it.
We also both have another Light Horse painting well on the way.
Since May I have been very busy along with the other 3 "Bloomin' Artists" (see October2010/January2011 MarshallArtMail) preparing for our
exhibition next month. Lesley has decided to go in a completely diferent direction so now there are the four
of us, and we think that we will have a really great showing, and our work is each so different there will be
lots of lovely variety. Here is the inviation, those of you who are in the vicinity of Toowoomba are most
We will also be demonstrating our painting skills in 4 different display gardens during the
carnival of Flowers. I will be in Mr & Mrs McKee's garden at 3 Culliford Drive, so if you are about, please
drop in. I will also have a display of prints, including the Clydesdales...by special request of my host, as well
as other prints.
Cheerio...I gotta go
