March Morning

 10x8in Oil on canvasboard

I am happy to get another painting finished after being so busy moving house! It has been a long time. I'm back living in New Zealand after travelling for 10 months around Australia. It feels good to be back where I belong and to walk around the areas I love! This is one of them...the estuary sunbleached grasses!

This marsh grass is along the waters edge of a big Estuary across the road from where we are camping in Australia.The mud is an interesting red earth color. Still not much time for painting but I do what I can!

Beach Grass

I managed to paint this between travelling times! We stayed a few days at Shark Bay on the Western Australian Coast, a beautiful place with golden sands, turquoise blue water and patches of grass...just the subject I love to paint. Happy to get another painting finished!!

Waiting for Fish

I loved the way these Pelicans were standing waiting patiently for fishermen to come in from fishing. I still don't have much time for painting and limited internet, so I was pleased to be able to get this one finished!!

It's been a while since I posted... time has been limited for painting while we travel! I picked this Frangipani while out walking in Emerald, Australia. It is a favorite flower of mine and the perfume is gorgeous... I had it in a small vase in the caravan. Whenever I get time I will be painting I love the colors in the landscape here and the light is beautiful!!

6"x6" Oil on gessoboard

This is one of only two flowers from my Gardenia bush this year, so thought I better paint it while I have the chance! It is a another favorite white flower of mine, the yellow pot was given to me by an old art friend.
