Yet Another Diversion!

A random visit to a new art gallery which opened recently in our valley found me straying (yet again) from my carefully conceived programme.  The gallery is holding a competition for miniature art works no more than 300x300x300mm in 2D or 3D  – and Peter, who is always so encouraging and full of helpful ideas – suggested that I might like to enter said competition with a little room box.  And of course, it’s very hard for me to say “NO”……and here is the end result.






I must admit that I had a lot of fun with this.  The dresser has been re-hashed severely – doors replaced and varnish stripped as was the chair.  The table is one Peter makes and most of the “stuff” was “found” in my rummage box.  Food is by Jessica (my daughter) – so you could say we were all involved!

  1. It's precious! What wonderful finishes. I'm totally into the worn look and this is exquisite work. And your daughter's food is perfect. Good luck with your piece!

  2. Lidi, you never cease to amaze me. You were bouncing ideas around last weekend and one week later you've completed a scene! It's a fab confluence of the work of three clever artists!! Your entry should spark lots of interest. Lots of luck with the competition.

  3. Thank you so much Caroline and Susan! I think I will need all the luck in the world - being the Nambucca Valley - this sort of "miniature" will be beyond most! I'll just be glad to promote the hobby!!
    Hugs to you all....
