Our Margaret River Summer, an oil painting by Ken Rasmussen

Our Margaret River Summer

Oil on Linen Painting
Dimensions 610 × 920 mm
SG95

This is my story about Margaret River. There is the forest and the pavilion out the front of Higgins Guest House. In the top right there’s a flock of birds. I’ve included the boat ramp where people go fishing and swimming. In the foreground, I’ve painted the Margaret River so you can see the vivid blue of the sky reflected as well as the rich warm colours of leaf stained water that you sometimes see. There are some visitors walking over the log bridge.

I like the idea of our city of Perth as a fantasy kingdom of light. Rottnest is this secluded retreat. The landscape of down south is this storybook creature that transports us to recreation and our own personal transformation.
