Today I attended the private view at Boonah Regional Art Gallery of an exhibition of Jan Drynan’s paintings, an artist I have long admired. In addition to Jan’s main subject of landscape painting, the exhibition included paintings and prints of the anti Coal Seam Gas protest by farmers and environmentalists at a drilling site near her property. On the spur of the moment I decided to buy the painting I liked most of all, a superb Scenic Rim landscape.
