Shortlisted for the BLUETHUMB Art Competition!

Hi guys,

Some very exciting news to be announced… my beautiful piece “A Drop of Enchantment” has been short listed for the Annual BLUETHUMB Australian Art Competition. The top 100 can be found here.

Here’s hoping for some great success in this exciting competition. Finalists will be selected on the 4th November.

Some exciting new aviator paintings are currently in the evolutionary phase on easels in the art studio. My paintings are evolving a little slower than they have previously but with a little more delight and magic. Time is a precious thing and so is health and so I am trying to learn to devote a little time to all aspects of my life where my attention is needed. But despite this I am still very excited to be bringing you more and more paintings and composited photographs that bring warmth and delight to your soul and a smile to your face.

Behind the scenes I am also currently designing a new range of labels for a local business and their product range. This is a very exciting project and I can’t wait to lift the veil on this incredible collaboration.

Talk soon,

x Tara Spicer.

What’s going on?

Hello and welcome again into my studio. Well the renovations have begun to slow here at my studio and I am slowly re-discovering my paint pots and brushes! I even found one of my art students hiding behind an easel the other day!!! In the meantime, much has happened both on and off the canvas and I thought I might do a little ‘show and tell’.

I recently whipped up and delivered this new commissioned work to its’ very happy new owners… a bathtub nude for a bathroom entrance… just perfect:

“Lucky Ducky”

I also now have two new works availble for purchase through and on display at Sensaura Day Spa at Noosa

In other news, 2 more paintings have sold through Gallery Beneath at Mooloolaba. Thankyou to my valued buyers and I know that you will enjoy your recent purchase for years to come.
