2019 Murals "Our Country Life"
2019 Steve Monk
MORNING AFTER THE B&S BALL
These are charity events held in country towns for young adults. Restricted by their isolation, it enables them to meet new partners. A weekend of dressed up people in dressed up utes; camping out. Enjoying live music ,binge drinking, binge dancing, binge romancing. A regular occurrence is squirting food dye at each other as well as all sorts of other outrageous behaviour.

MY “AUSTRALIAN GOTHIC” COUNTRY LIFE.
Ahhh! A home among the gum trees…..
With my family close.
Working the farm together
Caring for the animals
Caring for the land
This is the dream for me.

A KIND OF BLUE
My subject matter tends to be those fragmentary passages that reside with the not so mundane-the hidden agendas-the hidden spaces of our minds and the lives that we sometimes see and then do, we can’t help but take notice. Unlike tall tales and true these are strange and untrue. They are the grey areas, with the occasional hint of colour.
Raising questions with multiple answers; all of them correct.

EARTH’S GENEROUS GIFTS
This painting is about how much the earth gives us with her nature, beauty and bounty.
2018 Kerry Nicholson
MADE IN AUSTRALIA
Her beauty takes my breath away, the sunsets I adore.
The fauna and the flora, too unique to ignore.
From the comical duckbill platypus and the cutest little possum too.
The majestic wedge tailed eagle and the big red kangaroo.
Our national flowers are magnificent, red, green and yellow too.
And our bush tucker is but heaven sent , especially made for you.
Our uniquely Australian Mother Nature really is beyond compare.
Go outside and take a look but only if you dare.
2017 Murals "The Circus of Life"
2017 Kirby Sens
Now on South fence MG store
MOTHER NATURE, OUR GREATEST PERFORMER
Her spotlight shines on what we perceive to be our land, determining the fate of our farming industry. Our future rests with her, a bad season followed by riches. We fight to control her, her stunts become even more death defying, we become a memory, or a residue left on the land.
2017 Damian Cazaly
This mural now faces the Silo Murals
LIFE IN THE TRAVELLING SHOW
Mother Nature is always repeating her beautiful patterns, from snails below to galaxies above. Here we see her as the kookaburra, singing her song of existence. Within this song are the different states of this travelling circus as it flows, with an undercurrent of laughter and joy, throughout time and space in the vast expanse of the universe.
2016 Murals "Times of Change"

TIMES OF CHANGE
Changes in life made in time.
It seems always meant to be the way to be.
We follow the pattern of some sort with no exception.
2016 John Stevens
Now at RSC Echuca Rd side.
TIMES OF CHANGE
A representation of time and change through history, beginning with Eves’ temptation with an apple, which is mirrored by the power sources in a serpent like attack of the present day.
The male figure is a “Janus” image that looks back to acknowledge time and its changes, yet apprehensively toward the distractions of the present technological advances for the future.
2016 Trent Denham
HE’S DISCOVERED THE ONLY WAY PAST WAS TO FLOAT.
The broken bridge represents old ways. The place it leads to is quaint, but ultimately unsustainable and isolated. Sometimes the way forward requires new solutions, a new modality of thinking-creativity. Life is more than survival, it’s constructing a better future, not necessarily rejecting the past, but building from it.
2015 Murals "Ride like the wind"
2015 Susan Greentree
INTO THE COLOURED SKY, RIDE LIKE THE WIND.
There is a sense of exhilaration one experiences when riding fast. Wind blowing in your hair. Freedom of vast space. Glory of the coloured sky which ignites the changing hours of the day.
2015 Damian Cazaly
Highly Commended and People's Choice Award. Sold to Rotary.
ODE TO THE WEST WIND
Wind: the symbol of impermanence as it is forever fluctuating and never predictable and static. The central character (Nellie Melba) represents us all travelling through life. The artwork is about maintaining strength and peace through life.
