Supporters of my art know all too well my deep connection to country living and rural lifestyle, and my fondness for gum trees.
- professional artist oil paint
- gallery wrapped pure linen which is supported over strong stretcher bars and corner braces
- negative space created by the unpainted linen adds to the overall effect
- felt pads in the back corners to protect your wall
- framing not required, as the painting is stretched over an internal frame and therefore ready to hang
"Rhapsody" is so named because it is free-flowing and organic, while maintaining a certain structure, similar to the same term used in music. It has been painted in thick luscious layers of oil paint onto high-quality clear-primed natural linen. The natural fiber of the linen in the negative space further emphasises the natural view of the typical Aussie bush. As the linen has been triple primed, no further protection or varnish is required.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Born into a family of musicians, authors, actors, photographers and painters, it was natural that life lead me here, poised at the canvas, brush in hand. I live entirely off-grid at my bushland home in rural Victoria with hubby, dogs and a gorgeously prolific vegetable garden.
I use art to express my immense – well, let's say obsessive – passion for the indigenous landscape, which is easily recognised in my vibrant colourful artworks. Luscious layers of pigment are applied with energy and spontaneity, often switching from brush to palette knife to provide additional texture and depth to my paintings. Recently I have embarked upon a series of paintings using skin tones to further broaden my skills.
Like something similar in a different size or using different colours? I am really happy to discuss commission requests.
Please note, I do not produce prints of my artwork.
My paintings are treated with the greatest care throughout their life in my studio and home, or at exhibitions where they may temporarily hang. It will be carefully wrapped in bubble-wrap and sturdy cardboard.
