The municipality of Leichhardt Council was having an event called "Art Month" and last weekend coincided with their artist "open studio" day so Rodney set up on the street outside the gallery and I put up my sewing machine in the gallery and we showed visitors how we work.

I took "Valda" along to use as a work in progress to demonstrate with. The last time any work was done on the canvas was 3 months ago. In the 3 hours that we were "open studio-ing" I managed to get quite a bit done as well as chatting to people and explaining how I work to build up the layers of paint, stitch and textile.
Breathing Colours is located at 446 Darling St, Balmain, in Sydney. The show is open until late next Sunday afternoon, April 7th.
