We met these prospectors in the opal mining town of Lightning Ridge.

“Lotsa” work went into this one. Like the color Matt.
took a lot longer than usual, Mark, but once I start I can’t stop :-)

Colour, composition, technique… all excellent.
What a great scene … love it Matt. Starting to see your vectors as the ‘normal world’ almost, these days. It’s that non vector world that seems strange ,,,
thanks Bruce … there’s something alien about Lightning Ridge anyway … this couple and their dogs (the jack russell fetched lumps of rock like our JRs fetch tennis balls) were sitting on the steps of a pub in Lightning Ridge but that didn’t show the context of the environment.
Whoa, Matt. Complex, yet you make it look so simple. Your color choices and the subjects are just fantastic. Exceptional work!
thanks Fran … we met them in town then again later as we drove around the mining area … mine shafts are scattered everywhere, mainly one- or two-person operations that sometimes inadvertantly meet underground
Just awesome as always….
thanks Rita :-)
Love this one Matt..It tells a good story!
thanks Fran … jack russells are always ready to play, and this one was no exception, although it played with rocks in the absence of tennis balls!
Awesome. Thankyou for submitting this work to the animals and people group
