Glen Rock Gallery Online presents the inaugural online exhibition by
Fernvale Artists Group Exhibition
4 June to 1 July 2020
Fernvale Artists meet to paint every Thursday morning in the Fernvale Community Hall,
Banks Creek Road, Fernvale.
Visitors and new members are always welcome.
I paint people’s memories, such as Warrill View farm, the old Queenslander, the dam empty in the drought. And I love to paint our everyday world – the river, the lettuce crop, to show people that beauty doesn’t have to be magnificent, it is all around us.
These exquisite oil paintings, by Sue White, are displayed for your enjoyment. Unfortunately, none are for sale.
I have spent my life working with animals, pets and wildlife.
I love doing portraits of people, furbabies and wildlife, using pencil, pastel, acrylic, watercolour or silver and goldpoint, whichever captures the mood and character of my subject.
So many animals are facing an ever shrinking environment and possible extinction. We should be doing everything we can to keep our wonderful wildlife.
I hope to show the majesty and dignity in the animals I paint, no matter how rare or common they are. The connection I feel when I paint a portrait of a person or animal I hope shows through my work so others can experience this too.
My paintings are either landscapes or seascapes which capture my imagination and to which I have some emotional attachment. I try to capture the essence of the subject through light and shadow. My love is the Australian outback with its strong colours.
I like to paint many different subjects, things that have emotional meaning to my life. I like good strong colours and different mediums.
I like bright colours, and I like a painting that you can be drawn into. I get so absorbed in a painting that time flies. It’s the best way to de-stress and relax.
I love to paint flowers and birds and landscapes. I like to paint reality, and to show texture, such as feathers. And I like mixed media, and a bit of bling!
I like to paint things I know, mainly wildlife, especially birds for their colours and reptiles for their incredible detail, but I don't get a lot of time to do it.
My journey in art began with a small group of artists at Forest Hill in 1996. In 2003 I obtained a Diploma in Visual Arts at Bremer TAFE at Ipswich .Since then I have participated in numerous exhibitions and competed in many local shows in Somerset, Lockyer and Ipswich regions with a degree of success.
My love of nature dominates my work whether it be birdlife, wildlife, domestic animals or pets and landscapes. My aim is to bring my subject to life so that every day people can relate to my work and enjoy it.
