A Bird's Eye View Diptych

51cm (H) x 81cm (W) x 2cm (D)

Medium: Acrylic on the stretched canvas

Artist: Rosa Wong

Price:  $ 1,600.00

When I walked every day, I was attracted by the carefree magpies. They walked around me with their heads high, so I decided to use them as the subject of my painting. Naxi hieroglyph is also my favourite, it is called the living hieroglyph in the world. I have been to Lijiang in Yunnan and I was attracted by the unique Dongba culture. So I combined these two themes with the composition of Chinese ink painting and Western painting techniques to create a painting called 'A Bird's Eye View Diptych'. This painting also implies that if a person unconsciously accept standardized information, and will gradually narrow their vision and no longer have the ability to judge right from wrong.

Low Tide Barwon River

74cm (H) x 59cm (W) x 1.5cm (D)

Medium: gouache

Artist: Jo Reitze

Price:  $ 900.00

Throughout my life, I have painted impressions of the Barwon River from a seat at the water's edge at the back of River View Camping Ground at Ocean Grove. Low is freely painted in gouache capturing a mood of the river in summer. I particularly like how with lyrical mark-making the sandy foreground with shallow pools have been captured. I have also painted a pair of the same size and frame at high tide. I often paint in series, groups or pairs. This was one of the three locations at Ocean Grove shown in my exhibition, 'Sea Air' at Geelong Gallery as part of their Shell Regional Artist Program in 2009.

Morning Mist, Fairfield Park, Melbourne 2020

66cm (H) x 54cm (W) x 2.5cm (D)

Medium: Water Colour

Artist: Robert Young

Price:  $ 500.00

At one stage during the lockdown period in Melbourne the only outdoor activity was essential shopping and exercise. This painting is from one of our morning walks at Fairfield Park; the Fairfield Park area is great for walking with very little road traffic and plenty of scenic views. Due to its close proximity to where we live it is great for walking our two dogs. I tried to capture the solitude and eeriness of the mist as it lay across the grass on this May morning in 2020. Watching the mist fade as the winter sun warmed the earth also gave us hope that the virus would do the same.

Native flora vingette II

47.2cm (H) x 35cm (W) x 2cm (D)

Medium: Mixed media (Golden Open acrylic, Liquitex acrylic ink, Art Graf water soluble graphite, Daniel Smith watercolour)

Artist: Megan-Jane Johnstone

Price:  $ 250.00

This work reflects my ongoing wonderment of Australia's native flora. One of a series of 10 botanical vignettes, this work seeks to capture the unique patterns, colours and enduring vibrancy of various plant remnants (native grasses, dried leaves and flower-heads, seed pods) collected from local parks and bush lands. The use of mixed media (acrylic, ink, water soluble graphite, watercolour) gives the work its texture and vibrancy.

Waratah bay South Gippsland with its beautiful pristine beaches such as this is always inspiring to me despite the time of year and weather. It invokes feelings from calmness to exhilaration and I am lucky enough to live in close proximity to this stunning Promontory country and surrounds. This depicts a typical summer's day with warm sun reflected on the rocks, beach and waves with a slight soft wind to ruffle the seas surface and carry the gulls in its currents.
