This morning I opened my Resurgence magazine that had just dropped through the letterbox, first thing I always do is thumb through the beautiful photos and there towards the end was a beautiful montage of this Australian painter Anne Middleton.  It is part of the series 'Gates of Paradise', and her luminous work springs out at you like clear falling water.  There is technique of course I think, though have lost the link 

about using luminous oil glazing in transparent layers over and over again to get these shiningly beautiful images.  You can see more of her work at Rebecca Hossack Gallery ......


  1. Luminous is the perfect word to describe this thelma.

    1. I think she uses 17th and 18th painting techniques to get this extraordinary effect Pat.
