Very pleased that my painting “Road to Daydream Mine, Broken Hill” is included in the Mosman Art Prize this year. Opening on 23 September until 29 October 2017. Mostly painted on site in the Apollyon Valley (sign posted as Death Valley due to the number of people who lost their life working in the Silver mine). Many of the miners were children as young as 8 years old. It was a very uncompromising landscape, barren and dry looking in the midday sun but had amazing colour ranges during sunrise and sunset. I tried to capture this in the work.
