This is an oil painting on a custom-made wood panel mounted on a pine frame. The sides have been painted black. It comes with D rings, felt pads on the corners to protect your wall and wire ready to hang. This painting comes with its unique story and a certificate of authenticity.
My paintings are inspired by the beauty of nature. This painting was inspired by the South Gippsland region, out Korumburra way. This is a place I stayed at a lot in my younger days – planting trees, feeding poddy calves and running around with my kids. It was influenced by David Hockney’s style using colour with a twist of abstract to the landscape.
The wood panel was chosen for its woodgrain which has been incorporated into this landscape, the focal tree in the foreground, which has been preserved in high gloss varnish. After you’ve spent time travelling through the beautiful countryside, it’s often lovely to reflect on how you felt at the time or the thoughts you had. “Korumburra” tries to capture the peace and stillness experienced spending time in the middle of nature. What do you see, smell, hear? You soak in the glorious sun that shrouds you in warmth and love … and you feel your soul being restored by mother nature.
