All In A Days Work by Jaana Day

Currently unavailable for purchase

Genesis heat set oils on stretched canvas 30 × 40cm.
This painting represents the good old days of horse ploughing. I compiled it from 3 photos. The background is the hills around us here at Mt Berryman, the house from the Gatton Pioneer Village and the horses from a Heritage day we attended on Hermanns farm here in the Lockyer Valley. Had a heap of fun putting it all together and imagining what it would have been like back in the early days in Australia.

Drawing has always been a part of how I express myself. In 2004, I began painting with acrylics. Since 2008 I have mostly used Genesis heat-set oils.
Colour excites me and especially the way light plays on colour. All subject matters are potential paintings but I do prefer to have some sort of emotional connection with what I paint.
