I’ve been quite the busy artist over the last few months. Acrylic painting has been the main focus and I have been uploading quite a few paintings to BlueThumb. I have really enjoyed digging into my photo archives from our various road trips and using them as references for new work. Here’s a few paintings […]
As always I just HAVE to post about the botanical gardens in Cairns. After all, they are my most favourite place in the world to visit for photos, exploring and just plain old sitting in. We were able to visit the gardens three times in the three weeks we were there. I must have been […]
