The Crooked House $1530

The Crooked House $1530

"When the moon's very round and the night 's very still And the cottage is guest-room to goblin and gnome, If you stand in the highway and look to the hill, You will see the brown horses come covered with foam, You will hear the light tap of each hoof as it falls And the chink of the chains to the swing of the pole, And see a white figure glide out from the walls To open the gate at the Crooked House Toll." Mixed Media on Board W45 X H 60cm

So Angels Say $1690

So Angels Say $1690

“Adrift! A little boat adrift! And night is coming down! Will no one guide a little boat Unto the nearest town? So Sailors say—on yesterday— Just as the dusk was brown One little boat gave up its strife And gurgled down and down. So angels say—on yesterday— Just as the dawn was red One little boat—o'erspent with gales— Retrimmed its masts—redecked its sails— And shot—exultant on!" Mixed media on canvas with shadow box frame.

Sleepy Sea $1430

Sleepy Sea $1430

“We wandered shyly hand in hand, And rollicked in the fairy sand, And gathered pearls and shells in pails, While all about the nightingales Were singing in the trees. We dug for silver with our spades By little inland sparkling seas.... Mixed Media on Board W45X H60cm plus frame.

Seabirds on the Shore $1420

Seabirds on the Shore $1420

"First there were two of us, then there were three of us, Then there was one bird more, Four of us – wild white sea-birds, Treading the ocean floor; And the wind rose, and the sea rose, To the angry billows’ roar --- With one of us—two of us—three of us—four of us Sea-birds on the shore.

Cockatoo Feather $1440

Cockatoo Feather $1440

"I reached out for that waterhole, its mud designed by tracks of egret, finch and jabiru, while in the coming night the moon declined: a feather floating from a cockatoo. Over their limbs the night still tresses slept: faint in the stars a wandering night bird creaked. Then as towards their company I stepped, The whole misshapen tribe awake and shrieked...."

Where The Tide Came Swirling Free $1320

"The Morning Star paled slowly, the Cross hung low to the sea, And down the shadowy reaches the tide came swirling free, The lustrous purple blackness of the soft Australian night Waned in the grey awakening that heralded the light; Still in the dying darkness, still in the forest dim The pearly dew of the dawning clung to each giant limb..."

If The Shearing Sheds Could Speak $ 990

If The Shearing Sheds Could Speak $ 990

"Here and there across this land strange buildings can be seen, They are found in dry and dusty spots or set in pastures green, When passing by I have to stop and duck inside to take a peek, Imagining the tales I’d hear: if the shearing shed could speak." Mixed Media on canvas. W:45XH:45cm

The Outback Train $1590

The Outback Train $1590

By way of variety, the artist might make a watercolour-sketch of a fettler’s tent on the line, with a billy hanging over the fire in front, and three fettlers standing round filling their pipes. We crossed the Macquarie — a narrow, muddy gutter with a dog swimming across, and three goats interested. Along about Byrock we saw the first shearers. They dress like the unemployed, but differ from that body in their looks of independence..... Mixed Media on Canvas 60x60cm

The Secret Hedge $750

The Secret Hedge $750

"Through the green twilight of a hedge I peered, with cheek on the cool leaves pressed, And spied a bird upon a nest: Two eyes she had beseeching me Meekly and brave, and her brown breast Throbb'd hot and quick above her heart; And then she oped her dagger bill, - 'Twas not a chirp, as sparrows pipe At break of day; 'twas not a trill, As falters through the quiet even; But one sharp solitary note..... 40x50cm Mixed media on Canvas

Big Poll the Grog Seller $1800

Big Poll the Grog Seller $1800

Life was hard for women on the Goldfields.... "Big Poll the grog seller gets up every day And her small rowdy crib she sweeps out; She's turning in plenty of tin, people say, For she knows what she's about, Aye yes, she knows what she's about. Well, Polly's good-looking, and Polly is young, Polly's possessed of a smooth oily tongue; She's an innocent face and a good head of hair, And a lot of young fellows will often go there....."

Ghost of the Sunflowers $760

Ghost of the Sunflowers $760

When I was a child, living in Brewarrina, my Grandfather grew an enormous Sunflower. It was as big as a dinner plate. Never forgotten. He kept its seeds for the birds. Funny what you remember..... Mixed Media on wide edge canvas. 40x50cm

Silver Shadows $1580

Silver Shadows $1580

"Slowly, silently, now the moon Walks the night in her silver shoon; This way, and that, she peers, and sees Silver fruit upon silver trees; One by one the casements catch Her beams beneath the silvery thatch; A harvest mouse goes scampering by, With silver claws and a silver eye; And moveless fish in the water gleam, By silver reeds in a silver stream."

The Sweet Wild Moors $1580

The Sweet Wild Moors $1580

The Jasmined Door. $1580

The Jasmined Door. $1580

"I mind me of the cottage where I used to bide Just above the harbour on the steep hill-side; Cobbled was the cause'y to the jasmined door That looked into the kitchen with the grey stone floor. The cottage still is lookin' from the hill across the bay; Above the cobbled cause'y swings the jasmine spray; But the gleam o' ruddy faces an' the hearth-fire glow Went out in the darkness long long ago".

Still of Moonlight $1580

Still of Moonlight $1580

"In the still of a winter’s night, they say, when the wind is in the trees, When the moon is a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas, When the road is a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor, A highwayman comes riding— Riding—riding— A highwayman comes riding, up to the old inn-door...." Acrylic on board 60x60cm plus frame

Whispered Secrets of the Sea

Whispered Secrets of the Sea

Whilst in Cornwall recently , I walked along seawalls dotted with fishermen cottages that were hundreds of years old. so beautiful and untouched. “The little fishing village seemed to sleep, Nestling its head against the rock strewn hill, Along whose earthy sides the brown-backed sheep Cropped the low grass, and wandered at their will" Mixed Media on board 45x45cm

Twisted Memories $1280

Come Back To Me $1380

Come Back To Me $1380

"Come back to me, little dancing feet that roam the wide world o'er, I long for the lilt of your flying steps in my silent rooms once more; Come back to me, little voices gay with laughter and with song, Come back, little hearts beating high with hopes, I have missed and mourned you long. My roses bloom in my garden walks all sweet and wet with the dew, My lights shine down on the long hill road the waning twilights through.....45x60cm

Echoes are Calling $1380

Echoes are Calling $1380

By channels of coolness the echoes are calling, And down the dim gorges I hear the creek falling; It lives in the mountain where moss and the sedges Touch with their beauty the banks and the ledges. Through brakes of the cedar and sycamore bowers Struggles the light that is love to the flowers. And, softer than slumber, and sweeter than singing, The notes of the bell-birds are running and ringing. Henry Kendall H60xW45cm Acrylic and Ink on wood

The Boab Legend $1380

The Boab Legend $1380

“There where the red plain stretches to the river And the bank is furrowed by flood and the feet of the herds Where acacias dip to the changing brink of the water And the age-old rocks are the preening place of birds, You had borne and shed the fruit of your countless seasons From fortunate seed to tree of mighty girth Where the dream-folk met sometimes for the fore-telling In chanted treasure of a race more bold Than they - pale skinned - the conquerors of earth. Mary Durack W45xH60cm

Twas a Trackless Desert $1580

Twas a Trackless Desert $1580

"Once a little sugar ant made up his mind to roam To fare away far away, far away from home.

'Twas a dry, deserted desert, and a trackless land to tread, He wished that he was home again and tucked-up tight in bed..... H60xW45 Ink and Acrylic on Board.

The Tattered Bunch $1280

The Tattered Bunch $1280

Misty Mountain Hue $1280

Misty Mountain Hue $1280

"When I was just a little girl I painted soaring seagulls, In a dawning sky of duck-egg blue.

The Lonely Pier $1500

The Lonely Pier $1500

The lonely pier posts at the Wye River beach are witness to twenty turbulent years of timber milling at Wye River and Separation Creek a hundred years ago. A huge mill cut and supplied Blue Gum to South Wharf in Melbourne, however, nature intervened on this very wild coast, the jetty was washed away and the mill stranded. Now the weathered pier posts, almost forgotten in the pretty coastal landscape, are a lonely reminder of Wye River’s sawmilling past. H90xW60cm on wide edge canvas.

Waterhole Dreaming $1280

Waterhole Dreaming $1280

"I bring fresh showers for the thirsting flowers, From the seas and the streams; I bear light shade for the leaves when laid In their noonday dreams. From my wings are shaken the dews that waken The sweet buds every one, When rocked to rest on their mother's breast, As she dances about the sun. I wield the flail of the lashing hail, And whiten the green plains under, And then again I dissolve it in rain, and laugh as I pass in thunder." PercyShelly Bassey. 60x60cm acrylic

The House on the Heath $1330

The House on the Heath $1330

"When I am old, Give me for heaven a little house set on a heath; The blue hills behind; the blue sea before. The brick floors scoured crimson, the flagstones like snow; The brass taps and candlesticks like gold, And there, in my soft grey gown between the holly-hocks, Upon a day of days I would welcome an old poet; And pour him tea, and walk on the heath, and talk the sun down;' Flora Thompson...1891 Acrylic on wide edge canvas. 60x60cm

Splendid is the Seed $960

Splendid is the Seed $960

"Once in a golden hour I cast to earth a seed. Up there came a flower, The people said, a weed. To and fro they went Thro' my garden bower, And muttering discontent Cursed me and my flower. Then it grew so tall It wore a crown of light, But thieves from o'er the wall Stole the seed by night. Sow'd it far and wide By every town and tower, Till all the people cried, 'Splendid is the flower! ' Read my little fable: He that runs may read. Most can raise the flowers now, For all have got the seed

The Cottages of Lost Play $860

The Cottages of Lost Play $860

"The air was neither night or day, But faintly dark with softest light, When first there glimmered into sight.... The Cottage of Lost Play. 'Twas builded very very old White, and thatched with straws of gold, And pierced with peeping lattices That looked toward the sea; And why it was Tomorrow came And with his grey hand led us back; And why we never found the same Old cottage, or the magic track That leads between a silver sea.......

Confetti Flowers $1330

Confetti Flowers $1330

"When I was just a little girl I painted soaring seagulls, In a dawning sky of duck-egg blue. I painted ladybirds and whimsical butterflies, A red cottage with square shaped windows, A misty mountain with a purple hue.

As such was life, Carefree and beautiful as dreams. Charmaine Chircop.
