Pastel on Colourfix Sanded Paper – (Burgundy) – 70cm x 50cm

This is a commission I received via RedBubble from another RB member – Ken Tregoning and his lovely wife Diana. They wanted something similar to “Why I Live Where I Live”, so I went to the same spot in the bush where I painted that one from, so it would be ‘similar’ but ’different!!!I I delivered the finished work yesterday (30/5/2010) and it was the first time I had met Ken. I was trembling in my boots a bit, hoping that he would be happy with the outcome – and (sigh of relief!!!) he was!
