Painting the North Coast

Local artist Roland Schicht Sunshine has hung his latest work in the Book Warehouse in Keen St, Lismore. And it’s a big ‘un. It’s called From the Border Ranges Across Mt Warning to the Sea. (A big title to go with a big painting.)

This large panoramic painting (1300 x 600mm) is a view from the Border Ranges overlooking the caldera and Mt Warning (Wollombin) with Byron and the ocean in the distance.

The lush rainforest in the foreground reveals over 100 native animals, many hidden amongst the foliage.

There’s a superb lyrebird, a white-bellied sea eagle, a paradise riflebird, an azure kingfisher, a regent bowerbird… the list goes on. You can spend a long time spotting all the animals and birds in this artwork. (I did.)

The animals and birds are beautifully and realistcally painted. The painting underlines the richness and diversity of wildlife in our area.

Reproductions of the painting are available on fine art cards and in other small print sizes, ready for framing.

Larger sizes, on canvas, are available on request.

Other works by the artist are also on display at the Book Warehouse.

You can phone Roland on 6621 6459.
