A couple of days after I had retrieved the magical diaries of Australian artist, Vali Myers - I received this amazing tribute to her painted by Brazilian artist, Patricia Ariel (whose work was featured in the Summer Solstice Newsletter). It was as if I was staring into the eyes of my dear, dear friend again. Please go to have a look at Patricia's blog: www.mesmerizedbythesirens.blogspot.com to see how this amazing portrait came to her. You are a beautiful intuitive painter, Patricia, the truest portrait I have ever seen of Vali.
As part of the Vali Myers Foundation we will be publishing her beautiful & inspiring diaries in time for the exhibition opening at Outre Gallery (www.outregallery.com) in Melbourne on 24th September, 2010. Please come along and help us celebrate her wild flaming spirit.
