Deep Ripple at the Moreton Bay Art Award 2015

Deep Ripple was inspired by a visit to the Mt Coot-Tha Botanic Gardens, Brisbane. I did a number of sketches and took numerous photographs. (I do so love digital photography because I can over-indulge in taking loads of photos)

In this painting, the water is dark and mysterious but interspersed with bright reflections of the sky.There is a moment when something has broken the smooth surface of the pond. Then the surface flattened and the moment was gone.
Who knows what was there?

I am delighted that Deep Ripple has been selected as a Finalist for the Moreton Bay Regional Art Awards Exhibition which will be held in the Strathpine Community Centre, 199 Gympie Road, Strathpine. (Entry and parking via Mecklem Street.)

 This prestigious exhibition showcases excellent work from Queensland and beyond, with a  number of artistic disciplines being presented. There is a section for 2D artwork incorporating paintings and drawing; a section for photography and then another for 3D works. 

No theme is set which makes it so interesting to see the wide range of artworks all with varying sources of inspiration and using a wide range of techniques and media. 

The opening of the exhibition is the Friday evening at 6.00pm and will run until 24th May 2015.
