Child Fund Australia - Art Auction
Donation of Artwork

I recently donated this artwork for the Laos Water Cycle Art Auction. Alicia, Susan and Bryce hope to raise $24,000 when they embark on a 16 day, 464km ride across Laos and Cambodia. All proceeds go to Child Fund Australia to provide rural communities in Laos with clean drinking water and better sanitation. So, if your in Sydney on Friday 7th September, head to Gallery Eight, 12 Argyle St to support this excellent cause!

Prints of this work on stone (as seen above) are available for $190.

A little taste of New York
'Brooklyn Bridge', print on stone

This week I installed one of my photographs at Bill's Bar, part of the delicious Huxtaburger, on Smith St, Fitzroy. Printed over multiple stone panels and framed in recycled hardwood fencing (saved from John's property in Cranbourne, Victoria), the piece looks great next to the sculptural timber wine racks at Bill's. If you're in the neighbourhood drop by and be sure to sample a yummy burger.  

Re-prints are available - contact me at OnStonenicole@onstone.com.au

Diary from the Dempster
Watercolour and Ink, folding sketchbook, Arctic Circle, 2010

In the fading Arctic light at dusk, at a time when there is little more than four hours of 'darkness' each night, I began to unravel the vast landscape of Canada on my first night on the tundra. With materials at hand, rugged up and alone in the landscape, the valley and the distant mountains provided the perfect subject.

The evolution of an artwork
'The River Wife', watercolour on arches paper. 

'I have walked beside the river all my life and listened to its music. I have climbed to the reaches where rivers are born and I have swum in all the lakes that rest in the hands of these mountains. I have watched lakes filled with sky, hurried by wind, hidden by mist, whispering in rain. Lakes that overflowed into one great river that slipped away from the mountains.'

Extract  'The River Wife',  Heather Rose.
