I’ve mentioned Vincent van Gogh in a few posts in my blog. He is important in my life in that I grew up with him. He was an artist I liked from the start, we had a book at home. Of course, we were from Amsterdam. Also saw a great movie while quite young – well before the Kirk Douglas one. Read Lust for Life.
The last post had bush paintings that relate to my growing up in Australia. But I love Aotearoa New Zealand — where I have spent most of my life. The bush is different. If you have a big screen click this painting by Toss Woolaston.
More from Woolaston in the Gallery that follows.
Nolan, Boyd, Fred Williams and two of mine. Australia as I have it in my bones.

Ink sketches I do with the kids. Made it into a slideshow
Arthur Streeton exhibition at the Art Gallery on NSW . (Dead Link)
If I were flying I’d love to see this exhibition in November.
I inherited a Heidelberg School book from my father, it’s full of Streeton and familiar to me. Australian impressionism.
Later: August 2021
