My small paintings site

After a short break from my little works, I'm back and I'll be painting my toy paintings but also studies for my new major monochrome and occassionally heightened coloured works. It will be a good way for my collectors to be introduced to some of my new themes which focus more on people than I have before, as well as buildings and cars. This work continues on my retro theme but has a modern focus to it. CLICK HERE to see the lastest on my small paintings blog, This Small Painting Life.

Postcards from Port Lincoln

Feeling a little down and in need of inspiration, I headed of this week for three days to Port Lincoln, the home of the Tuna Farms and great open spaces or what I call BIG SKY Country! It was very relaxing and inspiring and am looking forward to doing some small works from the information that I collected along the way.

Tony Lloyd Exhibition opens in Adelaide

One of the highlights of the Adelaide exhibition calendar this year is the work of Melbourne Artist, Tony Lloyd. His work evokes a retro film noir with post apocalyptic images that were around in the 1950's, other images in the show highlight the romance of driving the night road to somewhere more promising. I'm a big fan of Tony's work and have two of his works in my collection, the show presented at Hill Smith Gallery is both consistent, and accomplished.
