French Lavender for Christmas

‘Lavender Field, France’, acrylic, 30x30cm

Someone once said that I must love purple as I use it a lot in paintings. In fact my favorite colour growing up was green but that has changed to blue since green is such a problem to paint with. Here is another painting to prove that purple must be a close second favorite . It can be seen at the Christmas Exhibition at Valori Expresso Lounge and Gallery .It opens  Sunday  2nd December at 3pm and continues for the month of December. Everyone is welcome.

Cradle Mountain

My son and his new wife honeymooned in Tasmania and spent a couple of days at Cradle Mountain. This wonderful place is the inspiration for my latest painting.  My other sons new wife gave me some silver leaf and I have used it to do the sky in this painting. I have also made use of some iridescent paints in among the  purples. It was fun to play with some new mediums.
