04 Oct Highly Commended!
I’m thrilled that this painting was awarded a Highly Commended in the
Australian Society of Marine Artists Silver Anniversary National Exhibition!
This is extra special, as the Judge was renowned marine artist Ian Hansen.
The painting shows a pocket of Sydney Harbour that was once part of the busy industrial waterfront,
then, later, became home to the Sydney Heritage Fleet (where a collection of beautiful vessels
of historical significance underwent years of meticulous restoration and rejuvination), and a quiet spot
for the rowers. The whole area is now undergoing seriously major changes – it will never have
his sense of tranquility and history again.
