Artist's Description

‘Swy’ is another name for ‘2 up’ a popular Australian game pre WWII days, especially with the Shearers.
This painting was the first painted in the series of ‘Looking Up’ compositions. There is another smaller version of this…upload later. So this is the original – the first of its type! The idea just popped into my head one night when I was cleaning/scraping off my paint palettes – I could see something in the paint layers that looked a bit like this composition…. it was late at night, maybe I was half asleep or something I don’t know, sometimes ideas/visions come when I am tired. Just a lucky thing that the dried paint layers gave me the inspiration! So I went with it… just go with the flow!
I painted ‘The Toss’ for an Cricket Art Competition in Sydney last year.
