SYMBOL


On Tuesday I completed a small (40 x 30 cm) painting that will be part of my exhibition next March in Launceston.

For me, this painting is rather significant because of its resemblance to my home state of Tasmania.

I found this rock on a beach near Mallacoota, on the south east coast of Victoria.

It is indeed a small rock, barley 7 cm across, but I remember my reaction when I first saw it. I had to photograph it and treasure the moment of finding it.

At times I found it quite hard being so far away from home for so long (12 months), during our recent extended holiday on the Australian mainland.

You could say it was a souvenir of Tasmania, found in Victoria.

To date, I consider this my most successful painting since my return to Tasmania in March.

Today I am judging an art exhibition in Devonport and I’ll be announcing the prize winners and opening the display of work by members of the Northwest Colour Circle this evening.
