Bright Morning, Mount Mulligan

size 510mm x 980mm

Price

Giclee on Canvas $380

Giclee on Paper $190

Mt. Mulligan is a mysterious sandstone outcrop north of Dimbulah, once mined for coal. It was the site of a tragic mining explosion in 1921 which killed seventy miners. Today the township has been relocated and the mountain is peaceful, especially when bathed in early morning light. The original of this painting won the prize for an outback landscape at the Drovers’ Camp celebrations in Camooweal, 2012.

 

 

Sanctuary

size 580mm x 800mm

Price

Giclee on Canvas $370

Giclee on Paper $185

The Undara lava tubes are a unique geological feature which attracts visitors from all over the world. A now extinct volcano once erupted and the hot lava flowed down a river bed for hundreds of kilometres. The surface solidified but the hot lava continued to flow, leaving behind a long series of caves or tubes. Over the centuries parts of the roof have collapsed giving access to the caves. These caves provide a home for the rock wallabies and cool protection from the blazing summer sun. Pinwell’s cave is on the ranger station at Yarramulla and is not open to the public. I spent several days sketching this as the extremes of light meant I could not take a good photograph. The second day my little visitor posed for my sketch as he was now used to my presence.

 

 

Cool Sunshine, Bullaringa

size 500mm x 840mm

Price

Giclee on Canvas $360

Giclee on Paper $180

This is another of my Bullaringa paintings. Once a cattle station, now a National Park, this painting of the Red River was bought by the former owners of the station to provide a memory of their former property. This park has a great variety of landscape, flora and fauna in a compact area.

 

 

 

 

Hubinger's Hut

size 530mm x 700mm

Giclee on Canvas $280

Giclee on Paper $200

This is a print of a painting I did in 1984, before my decision to become a professional artist. My children were still young and we had two jersey house cows. I had swopped another painting “Ghosts of the Goldfields” for the first cow and did this as a commission, payment for the second cow.
Hubinger’s hut was a well known relic of the past, seen from the highway, just north of Cardwell. It was originally the tack room for the Five Mile Creek meat works, later moved to its present site. One day I saw an old man in the doorway, so stopped and made a sketch. Needing more foreground interest, I added a portrait of our first cow  and our friend’s dog to complete the composition.
Years later my brother bought the painting back and allowed me to make the print of it. Hubinger’s Hut was finally destroyed by cyclone Yasi but locals have plans one day to rebuild it.

 

 

"Tableland Tamed"
size 240mm x 500mm
Oil on Canvas

 

Print available on canvas $180

“Tableland Tamed” was done from a lookout on the Palmerston Highway. The Southern Tablelands were once covered in thick rainforests but were cleared for dairying. Today only isolated patches of this scrub remain. In the background is Mt. Bartle Frere, Queensland’s highest peak, with its scarf of thin cloud, persistent even on a clear dry day.

 

 

 

Ghosts of the Goldfields

size 395mm x 500mm

Giclee on Canvas $200

Giclee on Paper $130

 

This painting was exchanged for our first cow. It depicts a storm I once observed behind the cyanide hills outside Charters Towers. It was painted for a competition, organised by the Queensland State Government, to select paintings for Queensland Parliament House to represent each local Council. It did not win but was runner-up. After being commended three times I was finally successful with my painting, “Edge of the Scrub”, representing the Tully area. My husband bought this painting back and gave me the right to make a print of it.
