Archival acrylic on linen stretched canvas

Description

Currently on exhibition at the Gympie Regional Art Gallery
Opens 19 August - 9 September.
I love working with my substrates. This is a linen canvas, and I've chosen to let the natural linen colour show through in my work. It makes up the medium tones of this painting, and gives a natural, slightly rustic, slightly weathered look about the work. This tortoise is my rendition from the 'Tortoise and the Hare' story, though in this incarnation, I've chosen to title it 'relentless' - the slow, hard, unforgiving trudge of journey.....
Part of my latest Caravan of Curiosities exhibition (along with Peta Lloyd & Nanette Balchin). A travelling exhibition currently on show in Yeppoon, and headed for Biloela, Gladstone & Gympie.
