Ode to Cheryl

Posted on February 13, 2012


I’ve been back in Sydney a few times recently and discovered a little gallery tucked away in Summer Hill called the Red Door Gallery. An exhibition in December featured three artists and I really appreciated the work of 2 of them – Cheryl Richardson and Larraine Weir. Cheryl had painted various ‘working harbour’ scenes with an emphasis on old Sydney ferries and tugs which I really liked as they seem an often overlooked part of the city. They instantly made me feel nostalgic. Her muted tones and loose brush strokes seemed to capture the beautiful early morning harbour light and reflections. I was very tempted to buy a gorgeous small work…

The top image is called Pippy Dee, it wasn’t my favourite but it is the only one I had an image of to share with you. Below is another of her’s called The Pathway which although on a totally different subject I like as well. What do you think?
