Road to Bonnie Doon

Road to Bonnie Doon, 6"x 6", oil on board

On a long road trip with my daughter recently, driving from Sydney to Melbourne. I love to get off the highways and explore the back country roads. Yes its a much longer trip but a least its memorable and you get to enjoy all the beautiful scenery on the roads less travelled. This just happened to be in Victoria near a tiny place called Bonnie Doon. (made famous by the Australian classic movie called the Castle) "Ah the serenity".

I'm always on the look out for something that catches my eye which might make a fantastic larger painting. Doing these little thumbnail paintings gives you a chance to see the possibilities that can come from an otherwise boring drive by scene.
