I discovered this article by Australian Geographic. As a keen artist and photographer of birds, I especially like Australian robins and wrens, and am amazed how many we have in this country. Just beautiful!
Australian Geographic has announced the winners of the Nature Photographer of the Year awards for 2019, and they are stunning!
My new photography book is now available to buy – Autumn Wonderland – which captures Australian Autumn at its finest. $20ea (includes postage)
The current project I am working on with soft pastel is an Australian Rose Robin, and he’s coming along rather nicely.
I recently self-published my first book containing my own photography and some of my favourite bible verse. These are for sale for $50ea (includes postage).
Here are two of my pastel bird drawings I am currently working on.
(the photos were just taken on my phone)
Australian White-Winged Blue Wren
Australian Red-Backed Wren (Female)
When I’ve finished these two, I intend to draw the male Australian Red-Backed Wren and sell the two (male+female) as a pair in matching frames. Or get them framed together in a larger single frame.
Thought I should make reference to these two artists because their works are incredible and so unique as well:
Here is the first artist: Lorraine Loots
“Incredible Miniature Paintings Of Galaxies, Animals And Books By Lorraine Loots”
and here’s the second artist: Megan Maconochie
“I create pencil shaving art for my 365-day project”
My Lord is amazing, but there are times when I wonder and ask with a smile: “Is this just showing off now, because once again You have seriously blown my mind with Your creations?!”
Here is the perfect example of God’s phenomenal and intricate designs. Enjoy.
My first painting for 2015. Took six weeks, but I was moving studio’s as well which added to the time it took to paint it.
I found this photo years ago of poppies and fell in love with it, telling myself that someday I would paint it. Well, here it is. First off the rank for 2015.
The painting has been given the name “Glad Song”, which I think is very fitting. I have to admit, I found this painting difficult mostly in regards to the shades of yellow and the background. It is very different to anything I have ever done before. Since going to Toowoomba my painting style has changed dramatically, and I believe I have finally found the style of painting that suits me best. As for the subject? Well, that will vary quite a bit. I’m not the kind of artist that can be squeezed into a small, predictable box. I like to surprise myself and others.
You will find the official image of Glad Song under “Paintings”.
