An eerie and contemplative painting by Kathryn Ryan for our 30 Year Anniversary exhibition celebrating the arts and Melbourne. Now based in the Western District, Kathryn writes: “In the 25 years I was living in Melbourne, I travelled past the Shrine and gardens on my way to the studio, often at night, coming home on the tram, walking in the evening or on my bike. The silhouettes of the imposing pines leading up to the illuminated Shrine always had a strong presence and impact. The dramatic lighting contrasted by the depth of darkness in the surrounding gardens offered a moody solitary place, a place for reflection and contemplation, a stillness amongst the movement of the city. There is a sense of mystery, what is revealed and concealed, what lies beyond in this place of contemplation. “ Kathryn Ryan 2019

Drove the tractor down to the field tonight and fed all the cows. Then I sat up on the top of the tractor and watched the sunset. You spend your whole childhood taking everything for granted and then when you realize how soon you'll have to say goodbye to the place you grew up and go do life, you start to slow down and try to keep the sun from setting. Hoping it will stay just a little bit longer. Trying to memorize the moment before it so quickly slips away.
So keep your eyes open always. Be all the way there wherever you are. Don't take anyone or any moment for granted, because it slips away so quickly.
And that's life. 🖤
There’s nothing like the smell of a freshly cut Christmas Tree. This DIY sign was created using our white pre-painted DIY 12”x12” board and a combination of acrylic paints and vinyl. Here is how it’s made:
1. Cut buffalo check stencil and farm fresh image using using the @silhouette.inc cameo machine and removable vinyl.
2. Once you have cut the buffalo check vinyl. Place it on your board. 3. Paint over the vinyl using light gray acrylic paint. Once paint is dry peel off the vinyl stencil.
4. We then cut the truck, farm fresh and one Christmas tree in black vinyl.
5. We placed the Farm Fresh and the truck tires on the wood board. Then used the truck and tree vinyl as a stencil and painted the truck red & tree dark green.
6. Once everything was dry we cut the tree & Christmas Tree words in light green vinyl and added it to the board.
And your finished! You can use all vinyl in this project or even use the vinyl as a stencil and paint it instead of using vinyl.
