Red Pepper with Antique Magnesia Bottle

Still life oil painting of a red pepper beside an antique glass bottle.
Peppers are red, bottles depend --
On what, through the glass, one's eyes apprehend.

Earthenware Jar with Nectarine

Still life oil painting of a nectarine beside an earthenware jar laid on its side.
Were I to misplace this earthenware jar, I might rightly call it a where-on-earth jar, and in finding it would leave no stone fruit unturned.

Interior with Balloon Back Chair

Oil painting of the interior of a room featuring a balloon back chair and a window.
I'm wondering if I ought to describe how I came to paint this picture, but I think I'll spare you the interior monologue.

The Three Sisters, Baynton

Landscape oil painting of eucalypts and cows with distant hills.
Observant readers may notice that only two sisters are visible (the third is obscured by the large gum tree).  The hill on the far right is only a distant relation.

Still life oil painting of a brown onion beside a glass mug.
Onions are brown, mugs unresolved; for reflections and backgrounds are always involved.

Teacup with Saucer

Oil painting of a Queen Anne teacup and saucer with a yellow rose pattern.
I should perhaps drink more tea this festive season; best to stay off the saucer.

Exhibition: Nature Rendered Permanent

Exhibition invitation including exhibition details and depicting flowers, a pear and other assorted fruits and vegetables.

My friends -- Fiona O'Byrne and Lana Daubermann -- and I are exhibiting some paintings in a shiny gallery in Kew, which should be slightly whiter than my normal shearing shed venue and with less sheep poo, hopefully.

Even if you don't like my paintings, you'll like theirs (I'm the José Carreras of the group).  We'd love to see you for some gazing, grazing and guzzling on Saturday 23 November 6:30 - 8:30pm at Ladder Art Space, 81 Denmark St, Kew.
