In 2015 I was priviliged to spend eight months driving more that 21,000 miles right around Australia in a campervan. In addition to a few photographs and the odd piece of writing, I tried to caprture a flavour of that diverse country in art. The pieces do not pretend to be masterpieces, it is enough that they are what they are and that I enjoyed creating them at different camp sites along the way. With two exceptions thay are all in acrylic medium and the first four are on 18 inch by 12 inch board. The remainder are on smaller canvases. Much of the work is in the style of Aboriginal art which thrives in Australia. I visited many art galleries during the journey and some of the best work by indigenous people is truly stunning.
