Year of the Rooster over and out!

Yep, they were hiding from the world ALL YEAR, but now they're out and willing to be integrated into society. Had no end of problems, blah blah blah. But I'm happy with them.

Here's a painting I've finally finished. Called "Riparian" it is a large oil depicting the local Hawkesbury River where I live (in fact my part of the river is on the straight on the top right had side of the pic). With the drought and various stresses on the river, it's not doing too well at the moment, and I wanted a 'dry' background with the local fish in a 'fossilised' form to symbolise the dangers to the life of the river. I plan to explore this theme further.
