One of the great pleasures of living in the Clare Valley is the constant source of inspiration derived from the landscape of the region. There is certainly four distinct seasons and the light is always different in each. Much like the French Impressionists, the artists can often paint the same subject matter over and over again with each work producing a very different visual experience. One of my favourite subjects over recent years has been the view from Clare toward Balaklava as seen from the beautiful Spring Gully conservation park. So it was particularly pleasing when my piece ‘Spring Gully Shadows’ was awarded the Clare Valley Acquisitive Prize at the 2018 Clare Valley Art Exhibition.
