Weddings are really good 'bread & butter' work ( as most caricaturists will tell you !) - just finished this for a couple that got married in Bali 12 months ago - this is to commemorate their anniversary.

I live in a beautiful part of the Darling range hills to the East of Perth, it's a semi rural area with lots of bushland. That has it's own worries with the recent heatwaves.
My immediate neighbours are Lorita and Andre Schmitz. Lorita is an acknowledged wildlife painter specialising in the local flora and fauna. Here are a few samples of her work and her website can be found HERE.
We regularly swap notes, though I'm not sure she really approves of that 'digital stuff'. A lovely lady who at the moment, surprisingly struggles to get commissions. I think the traditional painter has difficulty identifying and fitting in a niche to stand out from the thousands of websites out there. They get lost.
I'm introducing her to Google Adwords and going to get her blogging, we'll see how it goes, in the meantime check out her work I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
Well 2010 is up and running and the jobs are trickling in, it's a bit slow, but that has it's blessings, I've caught up on a few of those things I wanted to do including some golf. Half way through doing a new website but it may be some time before I upload it. I just want it a bit slicker and quicker to load. I monitor the site and note quite a few leave the first page waiting for it to load - a big 'No,No' I'm told.
