About

SEASONS GREETINGS and THANK YOU to those who follow and encourage my art journey with support and/or sales.
2018 Summary: Despite falling in a physical and creative hiatus the past three months that saw me stop painting, slower sales, and lack of confidence I could possibly keep up with the 6,000 very talented artists, online - it happens that I remain in the Top 40 best selling artist on Bluethumb, am invited to submit 3 paintings, by invitation only, for an up-coming Collectors Sale, and I'm included in Bluethumb's overseas Top 40 artists promotion.
I felt the energy and passion to create had gone, that it was time to count my blessings, to acknowledge that my late in life amateur hobby and artistic success to date is a miracle, that I had reached my zenith and it was time to let go. The past three months I let it go without expectation the energy might return.
December, '18 - after deciding yesterday to invest in new paint and 5 new canvas' ($800 - art is an expensive indulgence if you don't sell) as a Christmas present to self - just for fun, in the unlikely event I might dabble in 2019 in the cooler weather, to amuse myself. I awoke with a new vision, renewed passion and a way to express the idea. I rushed out and bought a canvas before the others arrive, keen to start 2019's Provocateur Collection......
Art, like life, is challenging and often complex, a process of 'becoming' authentic.....being 'real'.
Whimsy and tenderness, the earth laughs in flowers, la vie en rose, as ever, go hand in hand with my less comfortable provocateur, who is demanding a voice. Your continued encouragement means a lot - thank you
All paintings are ready to hang, signed front and back and come with a Certificate of authenticity.
I have been painting professionally since 2013 when I retired from full-time work and had time to explore my creativity.
My works are represented on Bluethumb, StateoftheART Gallery, ArtLovers and local Galleries.
Thank you!

Influences

I love Clarice Beckett's evocative tonal watercolours. I am inspired by Yeppoon's pink, evening skies that turn 'la vie en rose'.
'The Earth Laughs In Flowers' (Ralph Waldo Emerson) makes me happy, even the little weeds peeking out of bitumen, cause me to smile in response.
2019 is shaping up to be a year of Abstract Deconstruction, after a period of rest during Yeppoon's hot summer months - and over-imbibing the current world stage. I'm feeling it!
