Well, The Painter, The Dreamer Exhibition has come to an end after a wonderful two weeks.
Opening Night saw over one hundred people brave August in Melbourne to come and look at Liz's and my paintings hanging side by side at Steps Gallery.
Every day brought different friends, friends-of-friends, family, patrons from the adjoining Artee Cafe and an amazing cross-section of passers-by into the Gallery.
And there were so many conversations and stories! Liz sold one of her Greek paintings to a lovely couple who just wandered in from the street and were pleased to find an image that reminded them of the best holiday they'd ever had. I was thrilled to meet a lovely man called Sam who had trained under Patch Adams. Even more thrilled and very humbled when he bought Carnivale because it reminded him of the community work he does in places like India, Afghanistan and Indigenous Australian Communities.
Thank you to everyone who supported us - we had the best time!
If you weren't able to visit the exhibition, I have uploaded many of the paintings on to my Paintings page if you are interested in having a look.
