Enquiries, comments and commissions welcome!


An early morning start gave us intense light and some nice mist at Reg Bond Reserve in Viveash, great shadows and lots of interesting views at this quiet little bend in the river...

Our first outing after making the halfway point in our project - crossing the river now we started before sunrise at Bells Rapids and continued on to Maali Bridge Park in City of Swan.

Setting out early we were excited to reach this milestone in our project - finally painting at the point where the Avon meets the head of the Swan River - Walyunga Pool in Walyunga National Park, our halfway point!!
