Melanie Waugh, Artist

Friday, February 24, 2012

Dear Olive,
In a bit over a week, one of my best friends is having a big exhibition of her paintings. It's going to be amazing! I know this for sure, because you and I visited her studio a couple of weeks ago and saw her incredible work first hand. I first met Mel way back when she was at art school, and it's always been her use of colour and her brush strokes that make her work so extraordinary to my untrained eye. Mel's been working on this show while she's been the resident artist at australia square and it's inspired by her time in the Caribbean. I'm pretty sure the show will be another sell out.
(You can read an interview with Mel here. And see more of her work on her blog. Exhibition details are: Opening 6:00pm Tuesday 6 March, Australia Square Foyer, Corner of George & Bond St's Sydney. Come along if you're in Sydney! And if you're not, well unlucky for you.)

Was she really painting that little bikini bottom then, or was it a pose just for you? Hehe!
Her paintings look amazing! Some very refreshing images there. It would make you feel happy having one of them on your wall!
