Abstracted image of a place near Manly. Original painting is acrylic/mixed media on a salvaged hollow-core door.


australia, abstract, manly, ocean, landscape

My artwork is primarily focused on painting using water based media; often on recycled building materials. Many works comprise multiple salvaged hollow-core doors. “Mural” sized works – combining applied components with direct wall painting are also available. I received a BFA from Colorado State University in 1975 and returned to painting in 2009 after a 30 year career as an urban designer. Artworks have been purchased or commissioned by a number of private parties and public entities.

    I am sure that is near where I went some 11 years ago. Looked familiar from the thumbnail, then when I saw the description I wondered if it was because I was there? Hmm…

    Anyway great work! :-D

  • Thank you for taking a look. While in Sydney, we took a hike from Manly Beach out to the headlands: this spot was along the way.

    Nice to see your work featured, Eldon. This brightened my day! (It is dark and grey and raining here, though I am not complaining at all, seeing what much of the country is going through.) At first I thought this was a collage. Love the bright colors and the size.

  • Thank you, Marriet. I did this and another painting a few months ago; but didn’t like the results, and didn’t posted them until now.

    Your style is quite unique, one wouldn’t think this is hand-painted and in such a great size, it must be quite impressive when you are in front of it.

  • thank you for taking a look; and for your kind comment, Maraia.
