Standing in judgement - oil on canvas 900mm x 600mm
It is delightful to observe human nature. While the speaker is delivering one message the spectators are all reacting differently; individually interpreting what they hear and expressing some of that in their body language.

Every now and then I find the need to do something a little different. I don't think this gentleman is actually a drover but I'm pretty sure he's from the Northern Territory.

Gawler Backyard - oil on canvas 20cm x 40cm
