Michael Reid at Murrurundi

Apologies for not posting on the blog lately, i had a bit of a break over the past few days and over the weekend i went on a bit of a holiday to my favourite country town Scone, NSW. The family have a B&B there and i have really grown to love the town and the countryside and the drive through the Hunter Valley (Wine Country of NSW, for those of you who are from overseas ). This visit was the first time going up there on my own with the boys and we had a great and relaxing time and we always get so spoilt when we come which is lovely.

While i was there i went to Michael Reid at Murrurundi exhibition. I had visited the gallery on a previous occasion but didnt get to go inside so i was glad to make it there this time :)
I really loved the gallery space it was just beautiful and the work was inspiring. This is really my type of artwork, I love the textures and the choice of palette, it was even better in real life than it shows on the websites. The colour combinations which really pop. I love how the background colours are muted or subdued and then there is that brillant explosion of colour with fruit which draws the eye in. A trully inspiring vist one i would reccommend. I will definately be adding the links to my list of favourite artists :)
