Down in the Glen by Alex Gardiner

Canvas Prints

Available to buy on…

This is a painting by my father-in-law who is 86 going on 30. He still does his gardening and loves to cook especially with a little red wine incentive. One for me- one for the pot. I have three of his paintings to post here on RB. He knows nothing at all about what I am doing but if he gets some encouragement hopefully it will keep him painting. His name is Peter Jackson Hay.

I am situated in the beautiful Blue Mountains of New South Wales, Australia. I create my sculptures in the scenic town of Bullaburra which is at an altitude of 2,500 feet, between Penrith and the famous tourist town of Katoomba. I hope you enjoy my passion for sculpting and collecting all types of exciting Animal sculptures.
