I passionately love the creative process.

 

I spent most of my life going off to Heavy Industries and Coal Mines to work as an Engineer so that I could ‘make a living’ and support my family. BUT, my passion was always in my Art, in my Writing and in my Acting.

 

Now, I have retired ‘early’ to spend my time on what I have always enjoyed doing – pursuing the creative process.

 

My lovely lady, Lindi, took this photo of me early in the morning (early for me, anyway), sitting in my office under my FIRE painting.

 

It wasn’t a fair thing to do because I, obviously, had copious amounts of coffee to drink before I was ready to be photographed.

 

ANYWAY, this page is about my Art.

 

I draw. I also paint in Oils. I am also experimenting with Encaustic Wax painting – on both paper and glass.

As you can see from the photo, I am ‘no spring chicken’, so I have developed a Bucket List (as you do when you get older) and on that Bucket List was my goal to enter a Portrait in the Archibald Art Prize.

 

The portrait (shown at the bottom of this article) was entered in the 2014 Archibald Prize.

 

Some of my other paintings are shown below. (They are not for sale.)

ALBERT NAMATJIRA First Study

GRAPHITE ON PAPER.

90 X 140 mm

3-1/2” X 5-1/2”

 

To the left, is a Graphite study of Albert Namatjira. The image is an extract from my sketch book.

 

I was studying Namatjira for an oil painting that I wanted to include him in – as a tribute to an Artist who was very important in Australia’s history and in the development of my early interest in Art.

 

Being the son of a Wharf Labourer, I grew up in the wharf suburb of an Industrial City. Sitting under a print of Albert Namatjira’s beautiful ghost gums and hills for a number of years of Primary School was probably my earliest introduction to developing an appreciation of Art.

 

To the right, is my Oil on Board, entitled FIRE.
