Two weeks in Tasmania and not a sign of rain! The workshop was great and all the foul weather plans were unnecessary – talk about lucky. After we all said goodbye in Launceston, Dianne and I found our truck in the car park of Launceston Airport and headed south to explore some more of Tasmania.port arthur

  1. Beautiful photos, awsome nature. I was hoping for one or two of your demonstration pieces as well. Your vision of nature transformed into paintings is something I always look forward to very much. Your painting style is again and again a feast for the eyes and the soul.
    Best regards,

  2. John, I’m loving the black and white photos… they really add to the character of the place! I made it to Invercargill once on a backpack trip through New Zealand. Thought about making our way across to Tasmania but couldn’t work it out…. you’ve filled in some of the “visual holes” for me. Thanks for sharing these. They are so unique!
