A friend commented that this painting was a riot. That is exactly what I was after. I wanted to capture all the elements that excite and delight us in this landscape.
What a wonderful adventurous place Rottnest is. The passing ships are so mysterious with their colourful stacked containers. There’s the magic of Cottesloe Beach, whales, lighthouses and the movement of the clouds. And the metropolis of Fremantle, busy with its port, trains and excitement, watched over by Dingo.
These places awaken my childhood sense of wonder.
