Oil and impasto on canvas. 1mx1.8m

an extension of the ‘Building a Bridge’ series. This series began with the thought that Australia had much in the way of natural resources and the knowledge of how to manage them. The caretakers of the land were not heeded. Explorers lost their way, had opportunity stare them in the face and tracks were made with dying footsteps.

We continually have the opportunity to choose a better way. build a bridge, get over past decisions, build better futures.

This series was begun before the PM said sorry. That was a happy day.

The trend now is to live with more awareness. This was painted in hope that steps are taken on this path, every day. Blaze a trail, people!

    Commissioned in anticipation for Nike?!

    Nice one Sam – you have an awesome portfolio.

  • yahyah, was thinking of Nike

    -a painting fit for a Greek legend, a classic to be sure (now, am I thinking of the Irish?! ;)

    thanks for the collection compliment. I really went through a huge burst of painting. Am now post wedding poor for awhile-perhaps need to spend more time earning a living in other ways!
