Paintings 12+1+1 – A Suite of Hats

Like writing, Art is part of my identity. It gives fundamental meaning to life.

I paint for personal satisfaction, challenge and interest in the creative process. I like my paintings to suggest stories, incite a mood, perhaps present viewers with a mystery or conundrum. My people things are generally contextual and therefore I suppose a social record; my land/sea/creaturescapes idiosyncratic of the spirit of human beings.

The flamboyance of colour and sheer exuberance of Rainbow lorikeets that constantly whizz through my garden and clamour in the high trees bordering Passage beaches just a short walk from my door cajole me to paint these fabulous birds in celebration of their spirit… and life. A Crabman in his little punt, hoping for a good catch, sets his pots in the shadow of curious mountains. Like songs stories weave into memory of days in a punt upon sunny seas while time warps old amongst leaves and blossoms on home shores far from wanderings worlds away, hats and hands aflap.
