For as long as I can remember, I have always loved art... I often get asked 'what inspires me?' When I was growing up...we made our own fun. We didn't go on expensive holidays or theme parks, our holidays were spent camping or we would rent an old 'beach' house and play on the muddy tidal flats, pumping yabbies for fishing. As a family we would go for Sunday drives....we might go for a bush walk, search under logs for 'critters', picnic in the middle of 'no where', or go for a cool swim in a rock pool in the mountains. When I first started painting, I mainly painted the beautiful places that my husband and I tavelled to on our many camping journerys. Now that I have my 2 beautiful girls...I am sharing the beauty of the outdoors with them, and they now feature quite often in my artwork. I have been told by many people, that my artwork brings back childhood memories for them, and I hope that my artwork reminds you of a special memory too.

'Dune Climb' Figurative Oil Painting by Amanda Russian













'Step by Step' - painting progress














Finished Artwork
'Dune Climb'
Oil on stretched canvas
56 x 71cm

'Scampering up Dunes' is probably 'frowned' on these days....not the best for the environment...damages the vegetation etc...but I think alot of us can relate, and remember in our youth, trying to 'conquer' the huge climb to the top...so much fun!
