Last night I watched a CD recording of the 1st epsiode of 'Painting Australia', a 6 part art series produced by ABC TV about 3 years ago. John Wolseley was invited on location as the Master Artist interacting with 3 emerging artists -which was filmed in the bush near Bendigo in Victoria- for 2 days of solid artistic production with John as their tutor. To begin to appreciate this artist refer to his website He comes across as generous, engaging and someone who doesn't take himself too seriously. Travel to places both remote and tough going are par for the course. The breadth of his body of work and subject matter is inspiring and well worth further investigation.
