Art of the Flower is on again at the Burra Regional Art Gallery. I managed to get three works in this year and am very happy to announce that I won the "photography and digital works" prize as judged by gardening writer Trevor Nottle. Auburn artist Christian Vocke , whose fresh and dynamic work I admire, won the open section and I hear on the grapevine he is pleased as punch with the well deserved recognition. The exhibition will be on show until November 23, 2011.Read Article

Here is the first of my posts showing the work I do manipulating my photographs, beginning with fairly straightforward colour manipulation.
I love this old rusting Simca.
“Aronde” means “swallow” in Old French and it was chosen as the name for the model because Simca’s logo at that time was a stylized swallow.
