Renoir: 'The Boating Party' (excerpt)

Renoir's 'The Boating Party' is one of the most popular pieces in all impressionist art. In this excerpt I have painted the young lady who was to become his wife, and a small dog. This portrait is one of about 12 portraits in the original painting by Renoir, which you can also commission me to paint.

Artist Statement

I enjoy interpreting the great masterpieces of Western Art, and am often called upon to paint them in different sizes, or even to enlarge an excerpt of the original work.

I also enjoy applying stylistic elements of the masters to Australian scenery.

Detail from one of my Ord River paintings. To see this particular scene I had to paddle a canoe 25 km down a crocodile infested river!

My painting and teaching repertoire ranges from Vermeer to Van Gogh, and I have published 26 books on Art and Music.

I run my own cultural academy on Sydney's North Shore where I teach literacy in art and music.

I have been performing and writing music professionally for more than 40 years in venues ranging from the Kimberleys to the Sydney Opera House.

This broad repertoire I call "Baroque to Rock", which covers basically Bach to the Beatles. In recent years I have turned my attention to our rich heritage of visual art and in the same spirit have developed a painting repertoire ranging from Vermeer to Van Gogh.
