I created these bright little paintings for this year’s Make For Good charity fundraiser which officially launched this week. Etsy sellers from around Australia and New Zealand have made items reflecting the ‘Creating Brighter Futures’ theme and are donating a minimum of 20% towards Plan International Australia’s ‘Because I am a Girl’ campaign, raising funds to support women and girls in developing communities around the world.

‘Smoke Without Fire’ is a little do-over canvas that sat in a corner of the studio for ages before I decided to have another go at it. It turned out okay this time, so I’ve listed it on Etsy. It comes with the little wooden display easel shown in the photo.
“The dream would not go.
Some things were meant to be.
Yes, sometimes it is simple
and time would tell.”
“There was very little traffic
on this road to heaven.
He had some trouble on the way.
The past always lurked as he drove this road,
more real than the things in plain view.”
