An engaging couple

The comfortable and engaging relationship this couple share made them a must to paint.

The couple are friends of my parents and as the image eludes, is set in their Italian courtyard garden.

Second prize for the Live Life painting prize 2009.

LANDSCAPES - CINQUE TERRE














A family holiday to Italy took us to Cinque Terre which is a National Park and UNESCO World Heritage site.
I travelled with my visual diary and used it daily as well as photographed the beautiful beaches, cliffs and seas.

PAINTING FROM LIFE DRAWING


Lights and darks, positive and negative space, and composition are important factors for my life drawing. Because of time limits, the results are usually look quite immediate.

'Pandora' (second image) was chosen by Brisbane Institute of Art for a 2008 selected works exhibition entitled 'Less is more'.

SCOOTERS continued...











'Scooters by the Sea' (at left) which is set in Margate Beach in Brisbane. ‘Pink Palace’ (above right) captures Brisbane’s Mods in a significant location – the Pink Palace which exist only in memory now, but was once located in Spring Hill. "Parked" (above left) is a still life which celebrates the scooter's strong shapely curves. The latter two hung in Wilston State School Art Prize.


MORETON BAY REGIONAL ART PRIZE









My entry for 2010 Moreton Bay Regional Art Prize - pre-selection

I enjoy painting people and places - relating to one another in their natural surroundings. My painting is part of a series entitled Brisbane Pockets and this painting is from a scene at West End Markets, which is always a vibrant environment. The markets are just the kind of visual feast I like to look at and draw inspiration from. Potato Seller was short listed.

More SCOOTERS


Mods, a sub culture in Joh’s 1980s was adopted from England was highly influenced by English bands like The Jam and The Who.

BRISBANE POCKETS - Landscapes












New Farm Park
These paintings are from my 'Brisbane Pockets' series.
Both are scenes from lazy Sunday afternoons.



SCOOTERS









The political climate of Brisbane in the 80s was a challenge to those culturally on-the-fringe – you made yourself interesting to the Police – think Punks, Mods, Ska Beat girls and boys. However this difference of identity made a statement and was a way of thumbing one’s nose at that authority while trying not to get arrested for imagined civil liberties breaches!

Mod Boys' was chosen for a Brisbane Institute of Art selected works exhibition 2009 called e.g.
