Now Playing: rebekah del rio - llorando
I finally had a chance to take some self-portraits today, and this is one of them.
I decided not to accept the contract extension offered to me, so I've been back temping since last Wednesday. Thankfully with the Australian federal election coming up, I've had plenty of work to keep me more than busy, and between that and my tax return I should be back on even footing financially in a couple of weeks, after the costs of my road trip in March and my solo exhibition in June / July.
Last night I sent off an application for an independently funded residency in Scotland next year. It would be a fantastic opportunity and a wonderful location, so my fingers are crossed.
If you're in Victoria and would like to drop into the opening of the Corangamarah Art Prize, from 7:30pm on Saturday 7th August, tickets are $20 and available on the door, or beforehand through Colac Area Health. The exhibition will run until Sunday 15th August at Otway Estate Winery and Brewery in Barongarook, near Colac. Unfortunately I won't be able to make it due to distance, but two of my prints will be in the running for the prize.
