Laurie J Cochrane - Artist

A quiet kayak on the river in water lily bay is always a welcome time to be inspired.  The flowers float, radiant and serene with the lily pads shining symbolizing beauty emerging from the dark waters.

A work in progress  from the up north series.... Down by the Bay where the water lilies grow...

The Studio bedroom window ledge was a great location to stretch out and sketch in watercolours.

What next ... just play and have fun.

It is always nice to have time to reflect and review your sketchbook and travels.
It is now April 2020 and the world has stopped... Covid19 is a pandemic.

2017 2018 I worked on a cruise ship teaching watercolour painting to numerous clients.

During these unprecedented times of COVID 19,  pandemic --HOPE over FEAR  is needed.

Community over self is important.  The Lighthouse postcard call out is really about hope

I am so pleased that this painting of mine  was selected for the St. John of God

Hospital Link Gallery. ( Murdoch, Western Australia)   A true honour!  

This textured mix media painting captures the warm and cool colours of Australia. I have had the pleasure of living here now for 28 years.  



The coastal beaches of WA and looking out to the horizon always suggests endless possibilities.
