I have realised that it is a good month since the show but I haven't posted the images here yet, very remiss. They are however all on my website
Here are the larger ones,
This is the title piece "Paradise Found - Close to Home". It is just under three metres wide.
Here is a picture of me and Molly my dog model.
This was taken just before delivering the work to the gallery.
This painting is entitled "Evening Glow - View from Petrie Terrace towards Bardon". It contains more figures than most of the others but with the next series I do intend to put in more figures in this manner.
People totally loved this one but again and again it was just a few centimetres too large for people's walls. It is entitled "Summer Rain - View from Red Hill over Paddington".
This one is called "The Colours of Construction". The new building going up in the middle distance is right on the Milton railway track. That is Torbreck on the horizon at the left. The view is looking from Latrobe Terrace down Gladstone Street towards West End. I had fun with the warm light and cool shadows.
This one is looking up Isaac Street towards St Paul's Terrace Spring Hill. Note the dog and the number plate on the car.
This image is something of a composite scene. The worker's cottages are from Torwood at the back of Milton school and the giant fig tree is from Bardon.
|Robyn Bauer Painting of Brisbane City|
|Robyn Bauer New Farm Park Brisbane|
Another with the Jacaranda trees and a faint but accurate outline of the city in the background. This one is "Tending the Roses- Brisbane City from New Farm Park".
|Robyn Bauer - Brisbane painting|
I have called this one "Two Trees - Looking up towards St Brigid's church from Paddington". The second tree is of course the the telephone pole.
|Robyn Bauer - Hale Street Brisbane|
This is the view from Suncorp Stadium over Hale Street. In the bottom right corner is the old La Boite Theatre. First time I have had such fun painting cars. I think the angle of the road gives the work a modern look and contrasts the old with the new.
|Robyn Bauer - Paddington Brisbane|
I called this one "Jacaranda Evening". The view is up Ewart Street towards the Paddington water tower.
This is just a small selection of works from the show. I will post the more botanical ones in a separate blog post.
Hope you enjoy them!
