When looking up you see a whole new world of open skies and unique architectural details from another time.
In the city they are a sharp contrast to the busy life below, they add a unique charm to our peninsula community.
In the country you don’t see that same contrast but there is a strong sense of amazing stories that could be told by the old facades quietly looking down at us. Either way, I love the detail of carefully crafted architecture built with the pride of days gone by, against the backdrop of huge skies, open to the freedom of beyond…
Seeing the same streetscape over and over, I’m always fascinated by how it changes so dramatically in different light conditions. Even on a grey day, or in the rain. If you look, you can see beauty in almost anything, but one of my favourite times of day is the very late afternoon. The light at this time is very warm and rich, but in just a few minutes everything changes and it will be gone forever. These paintings capture those few perfect moments.
