Oil on canvas
70 x 70
I have lived in this community all my life. My upbringing has been mixed farming and country life. Painting landscape in oils has always been enjoyable for me, even though I paint many other subjects.
The Tatiara has beautiful diverse scenery, but my favourite area is Poocha Swamp. I am always inspired and motivated to paint this area as it is always changing. It has a unique water system that allows many species of bird life to come and go. This painting, 'Poocha Calm', was inspired by a warm, still morning in November as the water was slowly drying up.
