Illustration Friday theme: Perennial

if perennial

This is my entry for the Illustration Friday theme, Perennial. The tranquility of the garden on a warm day is broken by the crouching figure up in the tree. The figure's glance takes the viewer's attention outside the immediate scene.

A Little Game of Chess

A Little Game of Chess

I chose the game of chess as a way to illustrate the condition of obsession. I chose intense colours as a visual means of expressing concentration, and mental energy.

Illustration Friday theme: Stay...Calm!

if stay...calm!

This painting is my posting for the Illustration Friday theme, Stay. My take on it is "Stay Calm!" It is an homage to Lucille Ball; one of the best comediennes of all time! Lucy, was of course known for having regular panic attacks, as part of her act.

Illustration Friday theme: Midsummer Night

if midsummer night

This is my posting for the Illustration Friday "Midsummer Night" theme. The painting is of a neighbourhood in Sydney, Australia. Besides conjuring up thoughts of Shakespeare; midsummer nights bring to mind relationships, couples and beautiful scenery.
