Commission

White Open , 2008. Oil, enamel and pencil on canvas, diptych, 204 x 122 cm. Private collection. A Simple Song , 2010. Oil, enamel and pencil on canvas, 122 x 84 cm. Private collection, Melbourne Sometimes a client has a need for a particular size work for a special reason. I have done a number of commissions for both private and public spaces. This Melbourne client wanted a painting based on two of my previous works;  White Open , 2009 and  A Simple Song , 2010. She chose the size of the canvas and explained what she liked about both paintings. The commission took about two months to complete. The finishing touches.... Yellow Top , 2016. Oil, enamel and pencil on canvas, 122 x 84 cm. A commission, private collection Melbourne.

Studio

The studio at Yarra Bend Gallery Yarra Bend Gallery Studio Red and White Lines, 2015, oil and enamel on canvas, 137 x 122 cm. Red and White Lines, 2015 is a painting more directly linked to notions of landscape while still remaining abstract. A painting can take a number of months to complete. The final layer affect of this painting was created using a technique known as wet into wet where the top layer of marks are dragged through the semi-dry under painting. It creates an immediacy and differing brush weights which are hard to achieve another way. This work is available at Yarra Bend Gallery.
