Eight…

Eight years on WordPress! I’ve written more than 650 posts, uploaded well over 1800 images, and completely lost track of the number of canvases I’ve painted : ) And so it’s time for my eighth Happy Annaversary retrospective. Here is a collection of eight paintings created over the last year that represent my (current) favourite subjects and styles: the abstract floral, the do-over (that’s a style, right?), the experimental diptych, word art, New Zealand landscapes (of course), and Art for Australia.

Echidna

‘Echidna’ — acrylic on canvas, 150 x 150 mm, 2020. Available.

The colours of earth and stone, this little echidna (or spiny anteater) is another in my series of small Australian wildlife paintings.

Kangaroo

‘Kangaroo’ — acrylic on canvas, 205 x 205 mm, 2020. SOLD

This little kangaroo road sign is officially one of my favourite paintings. Ever. I love the curves and the colours and the sign and the shadow falling across the road. I’m a bit tempted to keep this one… So if you are interested in buying it (and supporting a good cause), I suggest hopping over to my Etsy shop before I change my mind.

‘Kangaroo’ is a painting I have created to raise money for people and wildlife who have lost their homes because of the out-of-control bushfires in Australia. I will be donating 50% of the sale of this artwork to the Gippsland Emergency Relief Fund and Wildlife Victoria. 🇦🇺
