Sirthomas1960 lives in the back-blocks of rural SE Victoria, and is an amateur artist, writer, renovator, and gardener who would love to make a living from any of the above…but as a single dad to the most handsome and clever 10 and 12 year old boys in all of Australia, and quite possibly anywhere else, he finds just surviving their childhood is far too much of a time filler to allow his creative pursuits much more than fleeting interest.

He has been interested in art from an early age, and worked in mainly oils until the last decade or so, when he started to dabble in coloured pencil, and then watercolour pencil. Almost exclusively his work is traditional, and very realistic, but he craves the ability to be more expressive in his artwork…to just let himself go, so to speak wistfully.

In the last year he has discovered the joys of digital art, and can now create to his heart’s content without the worry of having his two mini tornadoes making a bomb site of his humble home…now he just wishes there were more hours in his day!

Sales

Wow, two sales in a week!! :) Thanks to both people who purchased canvas prints of my work, Passion’s Embrace and Burano Colours. Have been VERY quiet on the painting front, but this might be the inspiration I need to get back on the bike. / Thanks so much!

A Sale!!! What a beauty!!!! :))

To the wonderful person who bought a large framed print of Heading Home on Jan 24, thank you very much!!! What a huge thrill! :)) / Would love to thank you personally, but since RB now keeps your ID a secret, this is my only avenue to show the gratitude I’m feeling. What a way to wake up to a new day! :)
