Claremont Paintings

Do you have a special place in your heart for the charm of Claremont?
Maybe you grew up here. Maybe it is where you raised your family.
Maybe this is the place you and your friends got together.

These oil paintings of Claremont capture what a special place it is.

The red roof homes, the old train station and the river just there.
Bring Claremont and those memories close again with an original work of art by Ken Rasmussen.

This painting is a reflection on that time around four o’clock in the afternoon when the sea breeze stirs up the surface of the river. It’s hot and the roads draw you down to the jetty on the water. You can see the afternoon light catching on the rooftops here and there through the Claremont village.

The higher up you go, the more Claremont sits perched on the river’s edge. The streets all seem to call you down to the water. Each boat is a little dream of freedom and escape. “Run away!” – that’s the invitation. Come and fly on this breeze until you are ready to turn for home again.

This painting looks out over Claremont at night, across Mosman Bay to the Nedlands Peninsula. You can see the car headlights and the streets illuminated by streetlights, and there’s a glow over the city in the distance.

This is a painting about living in the city and dreaming of the river. The little boats in the Claremont Bay are each a story of someone who has decided to spend their time on the water. I’m blending the water and the streets. In my dream, our life and our leisure can flow together seamlessly.

This is a salute to the dear old Claremont Hotel. For a long time its been a place where people could come together. Even as the modern buildings bubble up around her this old lady holds her ground. She is the charm of old Claremont lending soul to the new.

It is mid-afternoon and the sea breeze brings the city to life. There’s movement in the treetops. Somewhere close by a beach is waiting for us.

This is about the strong light of mid-summer that makes Claremont pale and sleepy. There’s a lot of bright reflected light on the water. With the heat, there is a stillness. It’s a time to slow down and let the warmth relax you.

This is about the last light over Claremont and Freshwater Bay. There are bright flashes as the setting sun hits the rooftops. The river turns to gold and there is time to slow down. For me, this time of the day is about homecoming and reconnecting with the family. It’s about letting go of the day and all its activity. A time for rest and replenishment.
