Fresh from the studio is my latest artwork “After the rains”. We’ve experienced some extreme weather on the mountain with trees blown down and damaged, and power outages. In response to this I painted “After the rains”, after walking and driving around. The contrasting colours are something I enjoy doing, as I’m very much a colorist.
If you want to purchase this painting it’s available on my Bluethumb profile.
“Sun moon landscape” is a recently completed artwork I’ve added to Gallery 1. Click here to view in the gallery context.
It’s an imaginary vista which could be interpreted in different ways, hence the title, Sun/moon….could be either of these. The colours could also be in a daytime or night landscape. Perhaps there’s some water in the centre of the picture. I’ve used small marks to add texture and create interest.
A recent piece, “Fallen branches” is available for purchase here
“Fallen branches” depicts dry forest, and reflects our drought situation in many places in Australia. The painting is made with acrylic paint on stretched linen, is ready to hang, and is 76x76cm, priced at $950AU.
I have been working on a “forest”theme lately…quite timely as we’ve had massive bushfires here in Australia, so far destroying more then 12 million hectares and killing 25 people but also over a billion creatures, some endangered, in these forests and national parks. My paintings explore the idea of forest, what it means to me and others, and our memories, sometimes of beautiful places now lost. The works I’ll show here are of imagined places, and the multiple images show my process. The paintings are near to completion but I’m not totally satisfied yet.
The first work is titled “Forest dance” and is 35x35cm(14x14in). This one is probably finished. The painting on the right is the final piece.
“Forest dance” SOLD
The second painting is titled “Dry forest with fallen branches”, 75x75cm(30x30in), and needs some more work. The painting on the bottom right is the most recent rendition. Hope this helps you understand my process.
