‘Black Crows’ is an intriguing image painted in a modern style. Yellow, black and purple. 

Painted in a contemporary manner, I was inspired to paint this piece after hearing the crows that are always calling each other in our neighborhood,

It is a little menacing, but intriguing.  I have used many layers of black yellows and ochres with hints of purple to represent the depths of the trees in the bush they reside in.  The crows rule the bush and protect their territory against intruders.

Eucalyptus are a passion of mine. We lived next to bushland and spent hours playing among gum trees as a child and the smell of eucalyptus transports me back to those carefree times. 

Therefore, it goes to say that Gum Trees are a bit of a passion of mine. I have painted many gum trees over the years and currently I’m working on a new series of paintings of my beloved Gums. 

Ghost Gums is one of this series. For residents and travellers of Australia’s arid heartlands, it is the Ghost Gum, ranging prominently across rocky slopes, red sand plains and arid creek flats that typifies the outback.

Myriad scratched and gouged layers of blues, greys, pinks and whites are utilised to portray the physical and historic attributes of the Ghost Gum.
