I was camping at Possum Park, just outside Miles, Queensland for a few nights and the owner fell in love with my art works and couldn't wait to show me what...

I wanted to paint something a little different from my last frog and decided to add some fungi as I love this type of photography.

Well considering my last blog I had a little bit of a melt down because of things not quite going to plan, to this frog, one of my best works to...

The painting that almost broke me... This time I was hoping for a quick watercolour painting and was sadly mistaken, as everything just kept going wrong.

So revisiting Filey beach, North Yorkshire England for a second time this week. I must have walked this beach hundreds of times as a kid and made lots of sandcastle, trenches...

Iv'e always wanted to paint some scenery form my home town, but never seemed to get around too it. A week of Christmas themes and a gift all changed that.

Just as Pete and Cynthia were getting their boat ready for a day of fishing and red clawing at Wuruma Dam boat ramp a pelican came by looking for food.

I must say that this is one of my favourite places in the mountains, and without the crowds like at Lincoln's Rock. I accidentally found it while checking out the aerial...

I started painting some burnt bark as a back drop but it went horribly wrong and the black paint mixed with a little white gave it a sheen. The more I...

Australia Zoo Markets were 3.5hrs drive from home and as we got closer to the zoo it was apparent that the 0% chance of rain may not happen. The clouds stared...

I've spent most of the day framing postcards and wrapping everything in bubblewrap for the markets tomorrow. I can't believe what I have created in the past two weeks, once you...

A few months ago I photographed this kingfisher at Mon Repos beach Queensland, in the afternoon setting sun. Since I was in an open area it was a little more difficult...

It's also a good time to put away my washing, people are curious as they seeing you painting and its not a good look if they almost get hit in the...

While camping at Wuruma Dam I noticed a few abandoned car wrecks in one of the paddocks. Apparently this car was owned by two brothers that help build the dam wall...
