Oil painting of train tracks leading to a railway station surrounded by trees.

Still Life with Chair and Flowers

Oil painting of a vase of flowers on a table with an open magazine and beside a chair with a blue cushion draped with a red cloth.
Hardly an electrifying painting, despite the fact that I'm giving you the chair.

Old Stables at Rosebery Hill, Pipers Creek

Oil painting of an old shed with a red roof surrounded by trees and shrubs, with a wheelbarrow in the foreground.
Paintings have been few of late as I've struggled to recover from the dreaded lurgy.  What better way to get back on the horse than to paint a stable.

Mandarine with Milk Jug

Oil painting of a mandarine beside a small white porcelain milk jug.
There once was a star mandarine,
Who appeared in the big magazines;
But dirt by media dug,
Exposed addiction to jugs,
So to rehab he went to get clean.

Copper Vase with Banana

Oil painting of a small copper vase beside a banana.
Vases are copper, bananas are not;
They're a fruit largely yellow with various spots.

Oil painting of a silver teapot beside a pink camellia flower.
This Camellia flower is not from the Camellia sinensis, or tea plant, and as such, is not my cup of tea.

Post Office Tower, Castlemaine

Oil painting of a Victorian-era clock tower surrounded by trees and buildings.
Pursuing a pleasing picture, I went first past the post office, then returned to paint the post office post-haste.

Carrot in Wine Glass

Oil painting of an orange carrot in a wine glass.
Overindulging in this particular drop might explain the otherwise mysterious presence of carrots.
