Twilight in Maine

I finished this piece last week. As of Monday, this, and a few other pieces, will be in the Gallery Cafe in Surry Hills, NSW. In total, they’re displaying about a dozen of my recent pieces.

This particular canvas exhibits a photo I took in August in Maine during the luminescent, golden hour. Now it’s mounted with a varnish seal for a glowing, sleek, full look.

Made in America

The above scene is a light festival in Centennial Park, NSW. It was one of my first experiences with night photography. The below scene took place in my favourite cafe in Surry Hills. It, too, was a first experience. Italicised writing is me.

Are you American?

Yes.

Do you know Francis?

I’m sorry?

Francis. Do you know him?

Um,  no, I’m sorry I don’t know your friend. It’s not exactly a small country.

(In my head: Of course! All Americans know each other.)

The Hunter

Here’s another vineyard in the Hunter Valley. This is one of the many tables with an incredible view at Robyn Drayton’s Vineyard. Her vineyard also functions as a cafe. According to Robyn, who led us through quite a fun wine tasting, she’s one of the view successful female vineyard owners in the Hunter. I bought a bottle of her chardonnay, Sweet Caress. It’s beautiful. Trut me.

Happy new year!

Happy new year!

The above shot was taken at Tempus Two Vineyard in the Hunter Valley, NSW. Isn’t the architecture done beautifully? I love the look you can achieve when you embrace the medley of organic and inorganic shapes. My favourite pieces of art seem to all have this in common.
