Painters’ nature works shown at clinic
NEW Delacombe doctors’ practice Lotus Family Clinic have taken the opportunity showcase a local artist’s works on their fresh building’s walls.
The watercolour landscapes and flowers, and oil birds, of painter Glenys Warren-Teasdale are displayed around the clinic.
“I’ve been painting and drawing for as long as I remember, with a love for nature; birds, flowers and life but I’ve only been doing watercolour paintings for a few months,” she said.
“A few years ago, I heard about a group over at the Ballarat East Men’s Shed. A brilliant teacher there has taught me to enhance and fine-tune my drawing.
“A group of us started to gain an interest in watercolour. I find the media of watercolour pencils, and then using a wet brush, very satisfying, and that’s how I’ve got the very delicate look of my paintings out at the Lotus Family Clinic.”
The opportunity for Warren-Teasdale to hang her works came about when she visited the practice with a friend.
“I was looking for a new doctor, and as soon as I walked in, I said, wouldn’t my pictures look lovely here? They’re calming, relaxing, and work with the feel of the place,” she said.
“I showed some to the clinic, and Jodie was taken with them, hence they are now hanging there.”
All Warren-Teasdale’s “calming…seasonal scenes” in watercolours are for sale, while the birds painted in oils are just for presentation.
“I’m grateful, thankful and very humbled for this opportunity to show my work,” she said.
A spokesperson for the Lotus Family Clinic the healthcare provider is happy to provide a platform for Warren-Teasdale’s paintings.
“It is a pleasure to showcase the work of a local artist and support them and their passion,” the spokesperson said.
