Robin Hines - Creeks & Coast

'Cooper Creek' 120x120cm Oil on Canvas

'Crab Creek' 101x76cm Watercolour on Canvas

'Beach Stroll' 75x85cm Framed Watercolour

3 lovely paintings from Robin Hines new in this week. The luminosity in 'Cooper Creek' SA is stunning, this one has be viewed in person to be truly appreciated. This painting would look amazing on a large wall with plenty of space around it. 'Beach Stroll' is a restful scene we can all relate to -framed and ready to hang. 'Crab Creek' just gives a hint of the subject matter & leaves the rest for the viewer to imagine. 3 very different but equally stunning pieces from Robin.

Karen Atkins - Feeling Fabulous!

'Feeling Fabulous IV' 90x60cm Acrylic on Canvas

A quirky & fun painting from Karen. The 2 best friends look like they're having a marvelous time indeed. The gorgeous vase of flowers offers a stunning contrast to the purple wall & I'm not sure if that's a window behind the BFF's or a Karen Atkins painting.
