RIVER SHORES INSPIRATION

30 October 2014

Since I moved to North Fremantle, on the beautiful river shores of Perth, I have been totally fascinated by the ever changing colours and reflections of the Swan River.

Since then, the river has played a significant role in my art, as I receive inspiration from it every day. I walk along the the banks every morning and every evening with my loyal four legged companion Batman, and depending on the time of the day, the season and the tides, the scenery it's always changing, and a constant inspiration for my paintings. 

A constant inspiration, always flowing but always different, sometimes andante as I'm walking steadily along the river banks, sometimes furioso over windy winter days, sometimes tranquillo with hardly any visible movement, often lento, dry and pianissimo, sometimes giocoso with pleasure, sometimes sparkling brillante in the sun, sometimes appassionato in the evening, sometimes vivace, and always, amoroso and fascinating.
