Inspire by Kim is now one year old. it has been a heck of a first year and culminated in my exhibition launch evening last Thursday. Friends, family and art buddies came together to see my artworks including oil paintings, Collograph, Lino prints, digital and paper cut pictures.
My exhibition lasts for the month of April at the Airy Fairy Cafe and Gift Shop. I feel blessed to be holding this exhibition and accomplishing this big step with my art.
For me it’s about reaching out to inspire people, to add a splash colour and energy to counter some of the darkness of the news media and world events, to brighten and hopefully uplift someone’s day. To raise a smile, to evoke a positive feeling. To spark a memory, spread a little nostalgia which could become seeds of hope. To reach hearts and minds with possibility of a better world, one artwork, one day at a time.
Not everyone will like what I do, but if it makes someone feel a little brighter then who knows where a small ripple could lead. This is why I create and share.
Here are some images from the Exhibition launch evening.
Prior to the exhibition the highlights of the past 12 months were:
Art Challenge 33 – My First Art Commission!
Art Challenge 34 – Football Fan Artwork
Self Portrait – Number 52 – the FINAL art challenge
The Hardest Year, 2015, Ends – Art Reflection
I wonder what the next 12 months will bring, exciting times.
Thank you for visiting my blog. If you would like to see more you can see my creations during my 52 art challenges, watch art movies or find some inspiration for a creative project.
Enjoy. Kim 😊
