Miss Otago

Five of us working around the old boat today. All very interesting interpretations. I rather hope that when we have our annual exhibition in June that they will all be on display.

I am aware that many people assume that when different people paint the same subject at the same time, that the results will look the same.

Not so.

When the perceived subject is filtered through different sensibilities the result will inevitably be different. At least as different as the personalities involved.l

Add in different media, differing sizes, and different agendas, and there so no surprise in finding that the paintings differ remarkably as well.

It should make for an interesting part of our annual show.
