South East Queensland's waterways offer so many opportunities for artists and the Brisbane River is no exception. "Brisbane River Moorings" was inspired by a photograph I took back in 2006 on an early morning walk with my brother, John. Central to our conversation was the discussion of how beautiful the Brisbane River is. I drew on that thought while I constructed this scene. The image is a balance of the calmness of the water, the electricity of the reflections of the commercial buildings and the contrast with the leisure craft bobbing on the water. I know that I've probably painted someone's home on the water - what a place to live!
