News & Events
Covid 19 – We all share the current serious concerns at home and abroad while maintaining firm view of the light at the end of the tunnel.
Forthcoming solo exhibitions Solo Exhibitions arranged for galleries in Roma and Surat this year along with group exhibitions in galleries around the country are now ‘on hold’ or in doubt because of the epidemic. The solo exhibitions may go ahead, but in the interim this work and other work will be compiled and presented via this website. Expressive watercolour and acrylic ink works from the Maranoa region and elsewhere – remote gorges, pastoral lands, byways and townscapes will be available for purchase online if the exhibitions have to be cancelled.
Recent painting trips – These included the north of NZ South Island – magnificent landscape/seascape, and a further trip to Central Queensland – Carnarvon Ranges and Arcadia Valley – Mainly watercolours – capturing the rugged, magical character and sometimes brutal beauty of the landscape.
Plein air city and townscape drawing with the worldwide Urban Sketchers group and Urban Sketchers Brisbane. Currently group sessions and events worldwide are cancelled or on hold, but solo painting of course continues. My “About Brisbane’ series and ‘interiors’ continue.
