If you think I swan around 24/7 @ social functions - well, you
would be wrong. I have still been fully-ensconced at the chalkface.
Kitchen-skilling, among other things.
But, I did get to Starr's lovely Show.
It was basically what you call a 'sell-out'.
Starr made a lovely speech.
She thanked us all for 'allowing her to paint for another year'.
What a wonderful way to show gratitude.
I liked that. Frankly, I had never really thought of in that context.
She's now pretty much a stalwart in the industry and if you put
your money where your heart was a number of years back and bought a painting, you
no doubt would have now quadrupled your dosh.
Bit more reliable than the Melbourne Cup.
The Eiffel tower gets a work-out at most Shows and I am not sorry to see it.
Starr dressed in what I could only call the ultimate frock for her.
The three Rs: ruffles, ruching, roses, technicolour beading, mullet-hemline and paint-splattered look satin.
Here's a little preview of the 60 works.
It's fair enough to say she has been busy.
She gave us all firm instructions to take a 'selfie' in front of her Alice in Wonderland inspired painting.
I did so, just before the rabbit-hole got me.
What are you looking forward to?
Any artistic endeavours?
