 An Enduring Subject

I read some time ago that the Australian artist Lloyd Rees described his approach to landscape painting as creating a world of his own imagining.  In painting "Inland Australia", I also read some time ago, that Sidney Nolan fused elements from existing locations with a landscape remembered from experience.  

Those words resonate when the impulse hits to paint the landscapes I've seen after travelling thousands of kilometres on the back of our BMW GS1200, both across Australia and overseas.  All that remains after a day on the bike are colours, shapes and the thrill of the ride.  

I work in all mediums, including mixed media, but oil paint is my first love.
