What a Carnival!

Have I mentioned I LOVE our Carnival?

And this year saw the realisation of a 10 year dream – to have my artwork featured on the front cover of The Chronicle Carnival of Flowers liftout magazine.


With a little bit of help from my friends (thank you Tammy and Melanie!) I was able to supply art for the cover, and they also wrote a very nice story about me (and Maeby, the studio dog, of course!).


The painting came to life in my studio a couple of months ago – they wanted me to use red, and I knew a face would work… meet Carnival Girl.


They’ve drawn a winner and I’ll be heading into to The Chronicle office to present it next week! I don’t know who it is yet (although a LOT of people have been asking!). Seriously happy to have had this opportunity!

Just a few more pics of how lovely it is here in Toowoomba at this time of year:

About Anna Battle

I’m an artist, guide, mother and a very handy Art Friend! 

My life’s mission is to share the joy of drawing and painting.

In 2011 I started offering in-studio guided Paint Alongs, and my first online course, 15 Flowers, went live in 2015.

In 2016 my book, Painting Party, was published (it’s still available on Amazon).

I now offer online Paint Alongs and workshops so that you can reconnect to the creativity inside you. Gift yourself the time to paint, and the guidance you need to improve your skills and your confidence. 

I invite you to join me and see the world through the eyes of an artist!

If not now, when?
