Larapinta Painter

There is nothing like the red dust of Central Australia that makes the blood pump in painters. My painting pal, Michael has been constantly pumping paint since his return.

I know the feeling, you just can’t shake it and everyone that I know who has been there is in the same boat, you have to get back there.

On a trip with World Expeditions to the Larapinta a gaggle of artists took in Mt Sonder, the dust and dingoes. Michaels small studies are fresh and capture the essence but on coming home they proved to also be a source of research material and combined with remembered landscapes was impetus for larger works.

This week some of that red dust falls on Hazelhurst Gallery in Sutherland and another of us that have ventured inland away from the edge will attempt to convey to the unconverted the love of landscape.

Cheers Michael and good luck!
