Exhibition at the Beach

Anawhata blankets as shown last week
and another view ... just because I like them.

 A month ago a group of four artists, Unlimited Pallet, had an exhibition in the local beach church hall and in the newspaper article about the exhibition they asked folks to contact them if they wanted to join the group so I did.  I made contact and some members thought I'd be an asset and some didn't see how I would fit in but I could come along for their November exhibition as guest exhibitor. 

One of the things the group does is they choose a theme, then they each start on a canvas and then hand it on to the next person until all four have worked on each canvas.  Well obviously I'm not a painter but I am very used to working to a theme or subject and would have enjoyed the challenge.  For instance one of the themes was The Ancient Mariner.  Well I can just see a ghostlike fabric for a scarf, light, ethereal, floaty.  But it seems its not to be.
 So here is my display (and I know one shouldn't take photos directly into light) and I couldn't believe I had red and I had blue and one set of lime and white place mats in between.  I think I need to work on some variety!
 The red side and
the blue side.
