"The Light of the North" is a pictorial record of Win's artistic journey, from enthusiastic child artist to professional artist with her own gallery. The paintings date from 1951 and include her paintings of the Ingham district, Western Queensland, Cape York and Lawn Hill together with some of the best from the Ravenshoe period. The text provides a background to the paintings, and covers succinctly the important events in her life.
Size: 12" x !2", 160 pages. Hard cover, image wrapped, printed on premium paper.
Price: $200 at Win's Gallery, $220 with p&p in Australia, overseas by arrangement.

 

 

"The Blencoe Falls Experience" tells the story of Winsome's two trips to this magical location, once chosen as the site for an episode of the TV series, "Survivor". The fifteen paintings of the Falls and the Herbert River Gorge, in early morning and afternoon light, provide an experience not felt by day trippers.
Size: 7" x 7", 24 pages.
Hard cover, image wrapped, printed on premium paper.
Price $55 at Gallery.

 

 

"The Beauty of Trees" brings together Win's most popular paintings of trees. Her portraits of old paperbarks, flowering jacarandas and flame trees, and burnt bush trees reviving after the storms have delighted many. She explains how she tries to invest simple tree studies with added meaning, as in "The Spirit Tree" and "The Golden Years", thus deepening the viewer's appreciation.
Size: 7" x 7", 40 pages. Hard cover, image wrapped, printed on premium paper.
Price: $65 at Gallery, $70 with p&p in Australia

 

 

"Rocks and Rivers" is a collection which focuses on Win's love of depicting water in all its moods; tranquil pools and waterfalls, and the summer rivers. The patterns of rock formations in limestone and sandstone, seen in paintings of Chillagoe and Lawn Hill, provide complex compositions with often brilliant colour.
Size: 7" x 7", 40 pages. Hard cover, image wrapped, printed on premium paper.
Price: $65 in Gallery, $70 with p&p in Australia

 

 

"Dawn till Dusk" focuses on Win's perception of light, from early morning till late afternoon. There is even a moonlight scene, created for children. The collection includes several of Win's popular paintings which were sold before she had the opportunity to make good quality prints. The first edition of 20 copies is each numbered and signed. Future editions will not be so numbered.
Size: 7" x 7", 40 pages. Hard cover, image wrapped, printed on premium paper.
Price: $80 in Gallery for limited first edition. Subsequent printings will be $65.
