Courtesy of Arthur and Yvonne Boyd I lived at Bundanon during 1989

1989 was a time before before the 5,000 hectare property was gifted to the people of Australia by Arthur and Yvonne Boyd and became The Bundanon Trust that it is known as today.

This was a complex time for me.  I explored a number of approaches to the new situation which obliged considerable change.

I have never exhibited any of the work from this period.

During this time I filled numerous note books and produced a broad spectrum of works, including;

Many imaginative drawings and oil studies;

A large number of small oil landscape paintings (plein-air);

A few portraits (in different styles),;

A small series of skull studies

A series of large expressive paintings

My archives of this work are limited.
