Pictured here (and in the feature image at the very top) is a delicate work that was created on a 9 x 5 inch panel in one of two workshops Brian attended at Edith Cowan University. Brian was supported by mentor Beryl Cuxson. Sadly, Brian passed away in November but we are comforted by the short time we were able to spend with this gentle man.
