The Surgeon 2013
Oil on Linen

Have been working on this portrait of my Great Uncle Dr Donald Beard for quite awhile now in between my other commitments.  Have decided say it is finished eventhough I could keep working on is always difficult to know when to stop...but stop I have. The image will be in the forthcoming publication from Wakefield Press called the 'The Diggers Doctor' due to be released April 2014. At this stage there will be a launch of the book by General Peter Cosgrove at SA Government House, which is all very exciting!
