These paintings were based on a series of sketches or “doodles”. I did them while on holidays with my Family at Port Willunga at Christmas, 2002. I endeavoured to loose all drawing skills such as perspective and proportion and to record a series of joyful events in as direct a manner as I could. Basic, simple and unsophisticated, I have attempted to express the simplicity, joy and wonder of a happy and precious family occasion.
