Janette Greenhill (1931-2015)
Oil on canvas 28" x 18" completed April 2017
The outdoors setting is by an evergreen oak tree somewhere in
the gallery of my mind at Eldorado. My approach to portraiture is to capture the spirit of my subject and if on completion I feel that the person is alive on canvas and 'in the room with me', only then I am happy.
The Iron Pot Lighthouse Tasmania 2017
Oil on Canvasboard 24" x 24"
Also known as the Derwent Lighthouse. It is Tasmania’s oldest lighthouse, and the second oldest in Australia.
The square tower was built in 1832 by convicts. The 11-metre (36 ft)-tall tower has a range of 11 nautical miles (20 km; 13 mi).
Barrow Creek 2017
Oil on canvas board 28" x 18"
The building on the right is the original Barrow Creek Telegraph Station,
one of a number of repeater stations that transmitted morse code signals along a single strand of wire 3,200km long, from Adelaide to Darwin and via undersea cable linking Australia to the rest of the world. The system was completed in 1872 and was closed as late as 1993.
