Life is about the journey - some roads are not always what they seem but you sure learn a great deal from them!
When you decide to take a career pathway as an artist, you often do so out of passion. For many who have ventured down this road, they know that following this passion comes with a price and often the reward does not equal to the value of the work.
First Snow, Guthega (Oils on flax canvas or Belgian linen)
Some pieces can take months, even years. You just have to dive into the history of Da Gama and Da Vinci to understand this. However, for Margaret Woodward, it took a lifetime to fill a gallery with priceless work.
Self Portrait also showed in the Archibald Exhibit
Margaret Woodward is one of the very few women, if not the only woman, to receive the Wynne's Prize for Landscape. Her work is so sought after that there are two books published, both of which have been sold out and probably never be reprinted again.
One of the rare books which you can receive with every large painting purchased.
Because of Margaret Woodward's age this will probably be the last exhibition. As a result there are only a few of her pieces available to purchase which, in my opinion, will soon be considered priceless.
A Taste of Honey - Pastel and Mixed Media on Canvas
There are some artworks that can be purchased, however there is a limited selection with some including the First Snow, Guthega (my favorite) for sale. Of course, this piece may have been sold during the time this article has been written, so you may wish to contact Gomboc Gallery personally if you are interested in purchasing this piece.
A full Blossom: Waterlily Series (Oils on Flax canvas or Belgian linen)
Every large painting will be sold with a signed copy of her book (which is no longer in print). As a result, you will be walking out with two priceless artefacts, which will be a guaranteed investment. This is one of the moments where you have a chance to purchase a 'Da Vinci' original had you had the chance.
