I love my job...


 I love my job - working as a full time artist and art teacher has been a dream for many years, and now is a reality. One of the special perks of being an artist is that I get do many different things so life is interesting and challenging. 

Deja Bru Cafe, a favourite local coffee shop, has been a staunch supporter. Soon after the Cafe opened I was commissioned to paint the large Parisian mural. 

 

Then I painted these collections of the delicious treats. 



Sitting in the sun with a coffee provided the opportunity to sketch the interior on more than one occasion. 
  



Recently I was asked to give a favourite inspirational sign a face lift. The hot Brisbane sun had bleached the text to a shadow of its former self. 

So here it is restored once more.


Now for the sad news - Jess has sold Deja Bru. I would like to thank her and her family for the tremendous support and friendship they have given me over the years. Jess is certainly one of the beautiful people...
My best wishes to the new owner, Peter. I wish him every success in the future.
