Just a couple of sketches done in my hotel room. Bob is watching TV and I thought I'd start on some ideas for the next exhibition... now that my current one is one day old already! I don't have the right cords, so I shot these with my iPhone, therefore there is not much detail.

Special painting for my friend and neighbour, Nora. I have painted many snow gums, and their plastic, multi-coloured bark is always striking.

At Guilin in China I had a chance to paint in the Traditional Chinese method. My first effort was a landscape, but after switching to easier bamboo, I felt more confident. Here is the result, before mounting. The paper is very thin, so one needs to work very fast and decisively.

This was done as a gift for a friend in Sweden. He loves the Sydney Opera House, so I thought I'd do a montage of Sydney. It was fun to paint. If the canvas had been larger I would have kept adding more scenes... maybe that's an idea for a larger piece: just start at one end and add new images side by side. It could become a diary of sorts if you kept it going for a time. mmm...

 It's winter and its snowing! I loved painting this commissioned work, knowing that I'll be skiing in a few weeks. These snow gums are amazing for their stripes of purple and green. They are unique to the snowy mountains in Oz. And are always in the way of a good run!!!
