ARTastic June Challenge - Distressing

Hello Everybody
I'm happy to announce that I will be joining the ARTastic Creative team from this month. You will have to wait till the middle of the month before I reveal my first layout but, if you go over to the ARTastic Challenge Blog, you can see some of the other creative team's fabulous inspirational pieces.

The inspirational artwork for this month is "The Jam Session" by Max Mannix - it's a light hearted look at the Australian rural landscape.

Max Mannix is an Australian artist who paints stories or ‘yarns’, based on his years growing up in Victorian country towns and working on cattle stations in the Queensland outback. These experiences and the colourful characters along the way have provided Max with an endless flow of inspiration for his artwork, depicting Australian country life in a light-hearted vein with keen insight and gentle humour. Max is a highly collectable and published artist, whose work is exhibited in one-man and group shows and owned by private and corporate collections around the world. Max’s work is predominantly painted in oil on specially prepared canvas board, but he also uses acrylics and pen and inks as well as creating etchings and figurative sculpture.The Mannix Studio Gallery is located in, ‘The Sandstone Church’, at the front of his residential property in Kenthurst, New South Wales.

This month there are two main sponsors:
