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.

The work was sold by artduo in Sydney. This is the second large painting that has been purchased by this owner. If you have an idea for art in your home or office please contact me.

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.
