This was a commission several years ago as a retirement gift for ‘Trevor’. The foreground log is very significant. Trevor would sit on that log with his son to watch the sunset (he lost two sons in their teens to cystic fibrosis), and I was asked to include his cattle in the painting.

I am a pastel artist living in country Victoria, Australia. My subjects vary, ranging from landscapes, portraiture, animal studies, figurative, life drawing, still life and I find the challenge of painting water particularly enjoyable.
