From Garden To Canvas 4.

My camera hasn't done justice to this painting,! I just took the photo, but I must admit the sky is dark grey, the temperature is only 7 degrees, it's freezing and about to rain, and it's 2.00 in the afternoon,!! but that's what I have got to get used to here in Western Victoria.! I love the brooding mystery of this one.

This is a drawing from life class last week, the weather in this part of the world is freezing at the moment, so I applaud the bravery of all life models doing their work in winter!! this would have been a 15 minute pose and the medium is Rembrandt pastels.

From Garden to Canvas.3.

This one is 1x1 meters, it has a very rich finish, with 2 layers of varnish,

I can imagine this picture hanging somewhere in a modern apartment, maybe in an open plan kitchen space,?  it should look really fantastic.
I wonder where it will end up? thats the nice thing about creating art, to imagine where they end up, in which city,?  which state ? or even which country,? what a privilege it is for someone to enjoy your paintings enough, that they will live with your work on their walls for many years,

From Garden to Canvas.2.

This is my second painting, same size as the one below, I will post up another two tomorrow.

From Garden to Canvas.1

This is the first of a new series of big still life paintings, (1220 x 910 ) they will be shown in the Daylesford Art Show in early November this year.  unless sold beforehand, I am enjoying doing them, and in a really modern setting, maybe on a white wall, they should look stunning.
