River Rushes


Thick impasto oil paint on canvas 110cm x 110cm ~ Down by the River Series

Candyss has always felt a deep connection with the area of Kangaroo Valley and its a favourite place of hers where her family had a farm for many years. DOWN BY THE RIVER SERIES was created after spending so much time literally down by the river in this area.
“I watched the children grow up here during school holidays running around the farm playing hide and seek, playing chasings and riding billy carts down the hill and swimming and collecting tadpoles in the Kangaroo river a two minute walk from the farm. We would always head off down the hill and walk along the riverbank and across large riverstones hopping across the water where we could – it was always flowing and beautiful – rocks, trees and reeds all along the natural riverbank. This painting ‘RIVER RUSHES’ was created after painting the first ‘RIVERSTONES’ paintings after we had spent a couple of weeks at the farm. It was sketched after a walk along the river then painted while back in the studio and working on other DOWN BY THE RIVER paintings. I usually sketch my thoughts and inspirations while visiting the land and then I return to the studio gallery where I then allow each painting to evolve spontaneously. I find I can relax and make a lot of mess on the concrete floor of the large warehouse space. These earlier landscapes are from past series where I have painted the land in a more representational approach. I will always hold a special place in my heart for Kangaroo Valley.”
