I have had an interest in art and photography for most of my life. Subject matter is often derived from my travels and usually done in either pastel or acrylic paint. I am a member of several Perth art groups. We have just spent several relaxing weeks on a boat moored at Rocky Bay, Rottnest. The peaceful scene I have painted on the bat greets me nearly every time I kayak across the bay. One thing I have learnt- you don’t feed the pelicans fish from the beach-my friend was chased by a very hungry bird for some considerable distance!!
