‘THE HERO’ and ‘THE COSMIC DONKEY

For the inaugural page I would like to present two paintings.
The Hero’ painted on my return from overseas in 1967 served as a catalyst for ‘The Cosmic Donkey’ painted twenty-two years later, Melbourne, 1989. The earlier work is informal in execution, the latter is more formal in design. Both works for me suggest an image journey of the imagination and are directly related in concept.

Comments welcome.
