This is a reproduction print I offer you of my original pastel painting from the Southern Flinders region of South Australia, completed and sold 2007.
My work is known for painting the Australian Eucalyptus Tree, especially throughout the Flinders Ranges of South Australia. When introducing water into my paintings, it is so often a calming scene once completed. This area near Melrose is one of my favourite haunts to paint and one that I know very well because I live approximately twenty minutes away via road.
Susan Borgas, Booleroo Centre: Southern Flinders Ranges Member Since October 2007 Artist Statement
Living in an area where splendour surrounds me lends itself to an artist paradise. So many people can relate the Flinders Ranges to artist Hans Heysen. The diverse range of light, textures & colour that can be found throughout this area constantly tempts me with new material to paint like so many artists before me and many more to come.
In the past I spent quite a lot of time painting in the studio. It isn’t unknown for me now to spend time on location drawing or painting, soaking up the atmosphere with nature’s music playing in the background. I sincerely hope that I can enrich your imagination and senses through my paintings and prints.
