Two Close Together

with 3 comments

I started to paint clowns. However, while working on the completion of a digital painting of two young Asian girls riding water buffalos close together, I imagined them in conversation about their time at the circus. Guess it is the facial expression without a face (I only gave them eyes) that struck me as circus like.

A Winter Walk in Stanthorpe

with 10 comments

It’s not officially winter until next month here on our granite mountain range, but the leaves have fallen, and there is a definite bite in the air. Later in the year we will have frost, maybe even snow.


No one can say our town elders don’t take their custodial role seriously. These trees in the High St have been cut back and will covered in fresh green growth come spring. This little park looks bare now, but captures every last drop of winter sunshine.


The ducks are still with us, and that lone crane is still standing on his perch in the middle of the river.


This little garden is blooming with bushes and flowers in the summer.

This gift of the muse I wanted to share with everyone – no editing, just a tiny bit of cropping – the beauty of spring in this iris:

Winter’s Early Warning

Winter's Early Warning Two

Winter’s Early Warning,

So beautiful and yet

Bears seek out their dens

and bison paw the ground

Knowing that soon

Snow will be shoulder high.

Ungulates though are unaware

the season of life and death

is nigh…

That only the fittest will survive.
