"SHADES OF THE WHIPSTICK" - PASTEL. Bendigo has some magnificent forest areas, with unusual trees and plants in the region.
This painting is of our Whipstick Forest, showing some of the colours of this beautiful area, including many of the many different types of wattle species. In August the forest is in full bloom with Whirrakee Wattle. This is a large painting (same size and price as Ravenswood Sanctuary). Please phone or email me for more details.


"RAVENSWOOD SANCTUARY" - PASTEL This large painting is now available for sale - see Gallery section - Australian Landscape for more details on size and price. The area of Ravenswood is just a few kms south of where I live and one of my very favourite places, where the trees and rocks are just wonderful. I love this place.

COLOURS OF AUSTRALIA - Artist's Acrylic - 30"wide x 20" high. This painting was in response to the country on the way to Broken Hill in New South Wales. The gorgeous reds in the soil, the mirage in the distance, the smallish, stunted mallee type of trees and dead stumps etc. You can have a look in the Gallery section under Acrylic to check price and confirm size in mm.
There are more Australian landscapes on the way - so stay tuned for more work. (P.S. I have just noticed there are a couple of sunlight spots on the photo of this painting - they are on the photo only - not the painting).

ANOTHER HAPPY CLIENT - Glenn and Betty from Echuca came to collect their watercolour of the family grocery store which used to be in Pakenham Street, Echuca. Glenn's father used to run the store with Glenn's help - notice it was H.Irish & Son. Thank
you Glenn and Betty for commissioning me to paint this very important piece of your family history. I am so pleased that you
are very happy with your purchase and I am sure your children will be grateful that you had the foresight to have this painting done for the future generations of the Irish family.
