Hi Jacko, Nice work. My favorites are "Holding the Sun" and "Cane fires at night". Great job.


The rocks are awesome, Jacko! I also like "Sandflats and Boats" very much. Your art has wonderful colours.

Hi Jacko, you do good paintings with good colors. Thank you, Moonsman_78


Hi, welcome to this website. Everyone is helpful and friendly. Very nice paintings. I like the long narrow ones just because they are an unusual format.


Great work! "Sandflats and Boats" reminds me of a very special place that we liked to visit! Welcome to the site! Deborah

Actually Jacko - just checked out the CANE FIRES AT NIGHT wow...brilliant. all the footage we see here in NZ is often of the humungous bush fires over in Oz and it I try to spare a few thoughts for those affected by them. by the way, THE CASTLE is one of our fave movies at our place. HOW THE SERENITY? :O) SEE you at Bonnydoon! :o)
