In 2015, I returned to painting in oils after many years of exhibiting exclusively in pen and wash. The large, loose oils were a contrast to my careful drawings, and provided a challenge and a change of pace. My tool of choice was a palette knife, which forced me to keep my technique loose and expressive.
The pieces pictured here were hung at Fairview ArtSpace in Mudgee in 2017. One depicts a home in San Gimignano, and the other is a bouquet of native flowers painted as a demonstration. Both works sold at Fairview.
