Net Work: the TLF exhibition is an exhibition of work by 38 members of The Littlest Forum (TLF), an online forum for professional contemporary visual artists. Curated by Amanda van Gils, Net Work showcases the diversity of artists who utilise the Internet as a vital tool in their artistic careers, if not directly in their artistic practice.

The Small Painting Project
To view The Small Painting Project click here

The Small Paintings Project is an ongoing online exhibition of my small oil paintings. I will be adding new paintings here on a regular basis and these works will not be exhibited, nor able to be purchased anywhere else. These small paintings are studies and explorations of subject matter & ideas that may lead towards larger studio paintings.

I also wish to make these paintings affordable to collectors. Currently, my paintings are priced between $2,500AUD to $40,000AUD, with the average work at about $15,000. As a solution for making these really affordable, I've decided as an introductory offer to price the paintings at about 1/3 what they should be. Over the coming months, I will increase the price gradually until it becomes more equitable with my normal pricing. The paintings will be priced, not auctioned, there is a flat rate of $10AUD anywhere in the world for postage and first to fill out the "Buy Now" button, is the one to purchase it.

All the paintings are painted with the finest oils ( Vasari, Blockx & Old Holland ) and are painted on Art Boards™ Archival Oil Primed Linen Canvas Panels that have slots for easy hanging.

My Blog - The Painted Sky
I have joined the world of blogging. To view my blog, click here "The Painted Sky".
The blog will be the place where I'll be scribbling up my thoughts peripheral to and directly associated with my art and it's making.

From time to time new work will be previewed and in the near future there will be an exclusive exhibition on the blog of miniature oil paintings.

It'll be updated about once or twice a week, so drop by & leave a comment.
