Original painting - The Rocky Bank


Award winning original painting by Michelle Harvey


I grew up in the countryside where rivers run and summers are baking hot. Inspired by a childhood playing on the banks of Burrinjuck and Blowering Dams. These banks were our summer playground where we made mud baths and tippy toed our way over the rocks to the dark waters. We climbed the fallen trees and ate oranges looking across the water to the far banks.

This piece was entered into the 2022 Tumut Art Show and won first prize in the LOCAL SCENE category.

"The Snowy Mountains landscape has many faces. This work has looked beyond the ordinary and found the mood and atmosphere that looks more deeply into its soul." - Judges notes.
