Disused Rail Bridge, Rippers Lane, Tylden South

Oil painting of a derelict wooden rail bridge surrounded by trees.
This beaten track was found somewhere off the beaten track.

James Lane, Tylden South

Oil painting of a road with with trees either side and a street sign in the middle distance.
I was rather taken by this little scene; in other words, I took to the road (or the lane as it happens).

Persimmon in Wine Glass

Oil painting of a persimmon in a wine glass.
Given I find wine generally appealing, this must be a persimmon of interest.

Red Pepper with ISO Tasting Glass

Oil painting of a red pepper beside an upside-down ISO tasting glass.
Peppers are red, glasses are too; that's the rose-coloured type one is said to look through.

Fluted Jug with Onion

Oil painting of a brown onion beside a small white ceramic fluted jug.

Baguette with Blue Cheese

Oil painting of half a baguette beside a quarter piece of blue vein cheese.
This subject had a high degree of difficulty, not because of its technical nature, but because it was my lunch and I was particularly hungry.  As such, the painting isn't quite finished, but the same can't be said for my repast.

Garden at Rosebery Hill, Pipers Creek

Oil painting of a garden with a gravel path running horizontally in the foreground.
Not entirely which trees and shrubs I've depicted here--just the garden variety (actually, I think the dark shadow in the very bottom right is the edge of a Sequoiadendron, but you'll have to take my word for it).

Tarrawingee Landscape

Oil painting of two eucalypts with a distant building in between.
I was going to make a pun about these two trees, but tree puns arboring.

Rock Pools at Woolshed Falls, Beechworth

Oil painting of a small tree in amongst rocks.
Despite appearances, there is actually a waterfall that emerges between these rocks--it falls between the cracks.
