The Arts Alliance Pine Rivers is holding their Annual Exhibition this coming weekend.
My paintings for this show are a combination of nostalgia on the one hand and also an exploration of my new country.
Towards Kaapse Hoop (Hope of the Cape) is a painting of the view looking towards the mountains in the Barbeton Valley, South Africa, from the farm where my daughter and her family used to live. Protea is also nostalgic - so evocative of my roots.

Blue Vase with Poppies is a variation on a similar theme that I have painted previously.

Mooloolaba Spray - don’t you just love that word - was painted after a visit to the Sunshine Coast, and Towards Mt Coolum is the view looking towards Noosa from the same beach at Mooloolaba.
