  • Work was inspired by the recall of the beautiful atmospheric yet often dramatic/energetic scenic works of C18th English artist/painter William Turner.

My “creative art practice” may be be succinctly summed up in the following fantastic metaphorical quote by Kandinsky:
~ “Colour is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key then another to cause vibration of the soul.”

    Beautiful colour combinations. Beautiful scene.

  • Thanks so much Bette. Glad I took the effort to get down so early to the wharf to capture what nature was offering for I had a hunch the grey overcast skies (wet season) would soon be overshadowing our landscape.
