    This painting is for my Mum who died in December 2014 after a horrifying battle with Motor Neurone Disease. She always said my first owl painting should have been called The Owl and the Pussycat as her pet name for me was Pussycat. So I revisited the Owl and the Pussycat and thought of her constantly as I painted this piece. The hydrangeas are a nod to her love of gardening – she could even get her hydrangeas to thrive facing the west under a hot Australian sun. I miss her every day.

    This is a beautiful portrait. For this viewer that lovely face reflects innocence and purity, although that is perhaps not what the artist intended. Great skill is demonstrated with all the elements of this piece - particularly the textures of the hair and the cap. Overall it is an outstanding image.

    Well, one must read the description with this painting. The artist projects such an enthusiastic spirit and I am immediately caught up! This painting surely conveys the fantastical, a place inspired by dreams of other realms -- yet within this world, shrouded in the lore of history and days gone by.

    I wish there was more socially motivated art such as this one about beach erosion; the concept is well symbolized with falling angles and elements. There is color (life) above but a cold bareness below.

    Very colorful meeting of shapes conveys a happy feeling. Looks like a gathering of boats -- as if they are all talking.
