Hi all! It's been a long time since I've gotten around to updating this journal, but I have some exciting news!
My art website is finally up and running: www.klbaileyart.com - my art is available to purchase from there, as well as some greeting cards. I would love it if you could all stop by and check it out, and I'm open to constructive criticism as I'm still ironing out some of the kinks.
The other news is that I have an exhibition coming up. It's called "Spirit Matters", and is being held at "Positive Art Space", downstairs at the Positive Life Store, 483 Old Cleveland Rd, Camp Hill. Our opening night is Saturday 6th December from 4pm - 6pm, and the exhibition runs until the 23rd of December. So if any of you are from Brisbane, Australia, I would love it if you could stop by to check it out!
Also, my 2009 calendars are now available! You can purchase one here: www.redbubble.com/people/klbai…

My First Exhibition
I have some exciting news! My paintings are hanging in my first "exhibition". I'm not sure if you can really call it that since it is just a cafe and not a gallery, but I am excited nonetheless. There are now 6 of my paintings hanging and for sale at Toscani's cafe, at Cavill Mall on the Gold Coast. I would be so excited to even sell one! This is me with my paintings: :thumb90173146: These are the paintings I have on display: :thumb89498285: :thumb82329281: :thumb82025659: :thumb81675543: :thumb86096226: :thumb85451640: I would love to hear from anyone who lives in the area and might have seen my work hanging up!

My "Starlight" series of paintings is probably my favourite and most popular series of paintings. I really love creating them - I find it soothing. I'm hoping to sell some of these paintings, and will be having a couple of them professionally framed so they can be hung on the wall. These are a few of my favourites from the series. :thumb85864506: :thumb85864748: :thumb85056547: :thumb82329281: :thumb83361566: :thumb82025659: :thumb85056675: :thumb82329729: :thumb82027172: "Firefly Tree" is sold, but the other original paintings are available for purchase.

Science in Art
I have always been interested in both science and art, and so in my most recent paintings I am trying to use this to my advantage - to paint science themed artwork. I have what seems like a million and one ideas up my sleeve on this theme (if only I can find the time - and the money for the canvases - to paint them). Here are the paintings I've already come up with on this topic - they are not intended as accurate representations of scientific topics, but are inspired by them: Europa Series: :thumb84022362: :thumb84410760: :thumb84022577: A series of paintings (including a large triptych on canvas) inspired by the colours and patterns on
My other little hobby (besides painting) is scrapbooking and cardmaking. I haven't done much scrapbooking lately, but I do get together once a week with some friends to scrapbook, and since I haven't been organised enough to do a page, I've been making cards. Now I have way too many cards (I will never send all of these to people I know there are so many!), so I've decided to sell some on EBay. If you want to have a look, the auctions are here: http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Unique-Handmade-Greeting-Cards_W0QQitemZ250243045842QQihZ015QQcategoryZ108865QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Unique-Handmade-Greeting-Cards_W0QQ
