a painting of the Queenscliff, a Freshwater class Ferry used on the Manly run in Sydney Harbour. H91cm, W76cm depth 4 cm.
Bradleys Head Has the tripod Foremast from the original HMAS Sydney.

This painting is looking past Bradleys Head to wards the city of Sydney and views of the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge.
This is based on a very old photograph of people fishing on the Wooli River situated on the North Coast of New South Wales.
The river upstream divides into three tributaries, the southern one becomes a small creek, the middle one goes into a mangrove depression and the northern one is the main one and continues for a few kilometres before becoming a small creek.
This painting is of the northern tributary “up past the forks”.
I entered this painting in the 2019 Wooli art Prize at Easter Where it earned the painting prize.

This is a beach scene at Minnie Water on NSWs north coast.
The beach was ideal to launch small fishing row boats to drag the mullet net out around the trailing schools of sea mullet when they were “running.”
Beach goers would help the fishermen to haul in the net and in return would be given several mullet in return.
They would be full of roe, and delicious when cooked straight away.

I grew up on a peninsular between the ocean and the sea, a fishing village, all the boats were wooden, and the dingys were all clinker built.
this is the second in the series. the first is much larger, so I decided to make this smaller to offer people a choice. The composition of the boats is similar but background and colouring is unique.
