Mary Myfanwy - Début Album

Exciting news as my sister, Mary Myfanwy, prepares to launch her début album 'From a Warm Room'.

This is a fantastic ten song collection with all material written and performed by Mary. Even as her brother I'm blown away by her voice and writing technique! She's seriously good!

An example of her writing is this extract from the song 'Butterfly':

 'The dying sun drips into your room, shadows have come, the dark winds croon for you. Where have you gone? Now that you've grown? You have your wings - unfurling to fly, they beat a warning to you....'

Crazy stuff!

Her music blends mellow indie with soft pop and blues.  

Unfortunately there are no tracks uploaded on Youtube yet, the only song available is Earth Dreams, a home recording created over a year ago.

But if you're keen to purchase an album they're $20 each plus postage and packaging. Please contact me directly and I can process the order :)

If you're able to come to the launch - see poster - please feel welcome, we'd love to see you at the Bridgetown Cidery on December 22nd.

Up to the Perth Royal Show 2014

As the Bridgetown Agricultural Show draws to a close I'm honoured to be representing Bridgetown at the Perth Royal Show 2014 for the 8th time in a row! Crazy!

First time I got the privilege was at the tender age of fifteen. On attending the awards for the first time the artists and sponsors treated me with a little patronisation.... Who wouldn't to a kid at an adult's State art award. Happily I took home second place!

I didn't receive another award there until 2012 where I took first place for a landscape in oils - the day before my 21st :)

For 2014 I have a small watercolour and gouache that will be representing Bridgy... It's a personal favourite of mine as it depicts a scene I've seen my entire life - a sunset through a set of pear trees that are the final survivors of an old orchard from yesteryear.

Boyanup Markets this Sunday

A busy artist is a happy artist - or so I like to think as I busily research and draw for many hours on my second book contract with Walker publishers.

And I still find time to paint a little bit of selfish art...mostly at markets and festivals. Such will be the case this coming Sunday where I'll be visiting the Boyanup Markets for their Christmas special event.

While there I'll be working on this painting that's I've been occasionally slapping paint on since August.

See you there!

Sunset on Hill - Oil Painting

Only a couple of weeks before my local Ag Show makes it's annual visit. I like to support the art section of this show as the entry count is always small.

My contribution this year is an oil painting with a slightly epic sunset. Unfortunately my camera hasn't done justice to the colours (that's what happens when you invest in a small compact camera!) but this is the general appearance.

Framed in a dark, smoky blue frame with a thin gold band this painting is for sale. For more info please email me directly.
