The Virtual Paintout

Spiky Bridge, Swansea
9.5" x 13"  oil on board

This month, The Virtual Paintout is traveling around Tasmania, the big island just south of Australia. Riding the highway via the Google maps, I came upon this interesting bridge, purely by chance. Built in 1843, it was built of local stone by convict labor. Jagged, spiky rocks were used on the sides of the bridge, but the reason why remains unclear - some say for decoration, others say to keep cattle from straying off the sides. You have to agree, it's very picturesque.  

If you would like to own this piece,  you can go to my Gallery page, where you can see more of my work at The Daily Paintworks.  Thank you for looking!

The Gift
oil on wrap around canvas 
12" x  12"

These wonderful gerbara daisies came to us as a gift. Planted in this nice little pot, they started as a kind thought, went on to be a table decoration and ended up as a painting! Thank you again to my family for their generosity, even if this thoughtful gift was not exactly meant for me!

This piece needs no framing - although you could, of course. Painted on all sides, it hangs flat against the wall.    

This painting can be purchased by clicking on the Pypal logo, or The Daily Paintworks logo on the left. It can also be purchased as a print from Fine Art America.

 You can see more of my work by visiting my Gallery page at The Daily Paintworks, or or the Artists de Studio. Thank you for stopping to look!

Canal Scene
20" x 24"  oil on canvas

In Venice, most walkways lead to a canal. Some canals are very small, coming right up to someone's back door or garden wall. Some have beautiful little bridges over them. Passing over such a canal on an elegant little bridge is where I found this quiet scene.
