How many colours are in the sky, when sky is all we can see ? They remind us of too of raindrops, waterfalls, petals of soft exotic flowers as we take the journey to enjoy the colours chosen and the pattens made. We come back to the fact as Stephen smiles and says "They are just shooting stars. In the desert and out bush, we can see many things up there in the sky" . These are just an example, stock will change constantly. If you see one of these lovely paintings that sings to you - it does need a loving home !
Thank you for a happy customer photo : ) The painting looks fantastic now stretched over a frame and aren't the colours devine
Again capturing the amazing beauty of a clear night's sky, bringing it into our homes. Auroras seen within the auroral oval may be directly overhead, but from farther away they illuminate the poleward horizon as a greenish glow, or sometimes a faint red, as if the Sun were rising from an unusual direction. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aurora
This is painted as one piece that when stretched can be displayed in either horizontal or vertical
Spirit Man - and "The Laws of Abundance in the Balance of Nature"
"We are born with everything we need. It is all around us. We have fire, water, hunting, shelter, tools, animals, plants, winds. Plenty to satisfy everything and be happy" Stephen shows us. All these things are celebrated in Stephen's strong Spirit Man's paintings. There is an appreciation here too of strong male figures - resourceful reliable men are very important role models in all societies and play an crucial role in the structure of Aboriginal societies' Culture, securing independence, respect for self & others of safe lifestyle choices.

A beautiful abundant Desert Spirit Man. Freshly finished - still with the tape around the edges, but it was time to go : )
In paintings of "My Country" Stephen's remarkable blending of colours in a birds eye view of Lands only ever walked blends striking decor with Country and it's sense of time and connections.
"My Country" A part of a larger journey. Landmarks and Songlines

Stephen is happy to paint these stories (not My Country) in your preferred tones where appropriate, it does not compromise the integrity of the piece.
