When I was a kid, we didn’t go camping. Instead we went West to visit Grandad at his Beebo property in the Goondiwindi Shire. Grandad was always dressed in pale blue overalls, so for me each glimpse of blue in sky, water or structure brings to mind his favourite work wear. I honour his legacy in the landscape by framing my paintings with stakes from the native tree plantation my family created after his passing. Nowadays, routine visits to check the plantation are aided by the “buggy”, a homemade go-cart which doubles as my easel when painting en plein air.
