HMQS Gayundah:  On the Beach.  
Oil on Canvas
120cm x 200cm
EXHIBITION PRICE:  $5,500
REDUCED TO $4,400
Gayundah was a flat-iron gunboat originally operated by the Queensland Maritime Defence Force and eventually with the Royal Australian Navy (as HMAS Gayundah).
She entered service in 1884 and was decommissioned and sold in 1921, and served as a sand and gravel barge in Brisbane until the 1950s, when she was scrapped. She was run aground at Woody Point near Redcliffe in 1958 to serve as a breakwater structure, and remains there to this day.

In concert with her sister ship Paluma, (Aboriginal word for “thunder”) the ships sailed for Australia in November 1884, travelling via the Suez Canal, under the command of Captain Henry Townley Wright.   The ships arrived in Brisbane on 28 March 1885.  

The title for this painting references that "On the Beach" is a Royal Navy term which means "retired from the service".The name Gayundah is an aboriginal word meaning “lightning” – no doubt because of her incredible 10.5 knot top speed. 
 
SHORELINE ANCHOR
Encaustic 
62cm x 98cm framed
EXHIBITION PRICE $1,800
REDUCED TO $1,440
The anchor is one of two situated in Far North Queensland on the Great Detached Reef. It is likely to be from the shipwreck Charles Eaton circa 1810 - 1830.
The Charles Eaton was wrecked on 15th August 1834 but for more than a year, nothing was heard of her passengers and crew. Gradually word started to spread in many and scattered countries that some were still alive but in captivity as slaves. Two ships were commanded by the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty to ascertain the fate of the survivors and rescue them. Tigris was despatched from Bombay and Isabella from Sydney in 1836. 

See the tragic story of the survivors of the Charles Eaton on my website, under Galleries - The Last Fleet series.

HMQS GAYUNDAH - FINAL PORT
Oil on Canvas
98cm x 64cm framed
EXHIBITION PRICE $2,200
REDUCED TO $1,760


HMQS Gayundah was launched at Newcastle upon Tyne in the UK on 13 May 1884.  
She entered service in 1884 and was decommissioned and sold in 1921, and served as a sand and gravel barge in Brisbane until the 1950s, when she was scrapped. She was run aground at Woody Point near Redcliffe in 1958 to serve as a breakwater structure, and remains there to this day.

SS DICKY - BEACHED REMAINS
Oil on Canvas
70cm x 106cm framed
EXHIBITION PRICE $2,800.00
REDUCED PRICE:  $2,240.00

S.S Dicky was a coastal trader that operated in and around Australia from at least 1887 until its loss in 1893.  
S. S. Dicky was driven ashore at Caloundra Head in Moreton Bay, in the southern end of the Sunshine Coast Qld in early February 1893 .   She quickly became a local attraction and rested partially on the beach since the wrecking of the vessel.  The beach where she lay has been named "Dicky Beach".    

By the 1960's, the upper deck levels had collapsed and the rusting hull (including ribs and plating) were the predominate feature.   In July 2015, she was deemed unsafe to the public and at danger of being lost forever, so the last exposed parts were removed and relocated to join the SS Dicky propeller at Dicky Beach park.   A wreck interpretation display, which will preserve the visible remaining parts of the wreck will be developed as part of a park landscape.
ARMOUR - CHERRY VENTURE
Oil on Canvas
77cm x 102cm
EXHIBITION PRICE $1,600.00
REDUCED PRICE:  $1,280.00


The Cherry Venture was driven ashore in 1973 during a violent storm.  
The stranded vessel high on the sand resisted every attempt to be returned to its sea duties, clearly choosing to become the accidental tourist attraction on the Noosa Northshore Sands.  Abandoned to its fate – the mercy of the natural forces, the Cherry Venture slowly yet inevitably eroded and corroded into rust and dust. Sand, salt, water and air combined in an irritable assault on the integrity of all the structures forming the ship.

When seen by the artist in 2000, the Cherry Venture was a mere shadow of the cargo vessel it once was. However, the weathering processes acting on the structures, along with the richness of the colours, texture and patterns left in the decay, and graffiti where tourists felt the irresistible need to leave their mark, created their own rich beauty.   This beauty is the inspiration for this series of paintings.

The Cherry Venture was removed from the Teewah Beach in February/March 2007 because of environmental danger to the public and shipped to China to be used for scrap metal.  This danger was caused when the erosion and corrosion eventually left the engine exposed, sending asbestos into the atmosphere.

BREAKER
Resin
45cm x 65cm
EXHIBITION PRICE:  $400.00
REDUCED PRICE:  $320.00




Inspired by the Sea.
With my Resin art, I love the freedom of applying colours in a random fashion on a blank substrate, tilting my board and just letting the beautiful colours flow and merge, until something appears as if by magic that pleases me. My background training and experience in art has taken me to a point where I can just play with beautiful colours and find what I am not consciously seeking.

Breaker is a resin & pigment wall art piece ready to hang on MDF board. The process of the art begins with the mixing of two part Epoxy Resin, with artist quality pigment pastes added into the resin. The beauty of resin is in its extraordinary vivid colours and fine detail obtained when colour pigments are added. The epoxy resin used is a hard, UV resistant, clear laminating resin. I am inspired by colour and texture.

'A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, to be ultimately at peace within'.    
The colour magenta is one of universal harmony and emotional balance. It is spiritual yet practical, encouraging common sense and a balanced outlook on life.  It contains the qualities of passion, energy and power blended with introspection and reflection.

WILD SUMMER PASSION

If you don't know your purpose, figure out your passion.  For your passion will lead you right into your purpose.
 
Passion lies in all of us, sleeping... waiting...and though unwanted... unbidden... it will stir... open its jaws and howl.  It speaks to us... guides us... passion rules us all, and we obey.  What other choice do we have?  Passion is the source of our finest moments.  The joy of love... the clarity of hatred... and the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear.  If we could live without passion maybe we'd know some kind of peace... but we would be hollow...  Empty rooms shuttered and dank.  Without passion we'd be truly dead. (Joss Whedon).
