Logan Art Gallery

Good morning all. Today after getting the old once over to make myself beautiful for the festive season I took myself on a date. I often do this as I enjoy my own company (yes I know strange, but I do). A very nice friend Jan told me about an upcoming exhibition at the Logan Art Gallery.
The exhibition was by super talented members of the Queensland Wildlife Artists Society Inc. You can read all about them Here 
You know how much I love wildlife. The exhibits were just stunning and I loved every second I was there.
So many talented artist's work to admire.
A lovely lady by the name of Gail Higgins got talking to me and I was admiring a lovely piece of work with Pigeons and it turns out they were Gail's and not only that she had won "Best in Show" for it. Gail was generous enough to let me take a photo of her with her gorgeous piece.
The detail was amazing. I was so inspired by all that I saw. It is well worth a visit to see the 60 + beautiful pieces of art. You will not be disappointed. Thanks to my friend Jan....I loved it as you knew I would!
We have a house guest for a couple of days.....yes Miss Sophie has come to stay!
There goes the neighbourhood! LOL!
I thought I would end my post by sharing with you one of my favourite very old Father Christmas's made by my friend Ann. I always look forward to putting him out every year...
I hope that you are taking time out to do something you love this weekend.
Namaste and Blessings
