Here is some more information about John Rice:

Traditional Landscape in Oils

John is an energetic outdoor painter who works almost exclusively in oils and is stimulated by the strong light of the Australian landscape. He is particularly enthusiastic about the Hawkesbury and Nepean districts to The Central West artistically. He enjoys painting the landscape from life, “en plein air”, and engages in regular painting trips to country locations.

John lives in the village of Mulgoa on the western fringes of Sydney, providing a lot for an artist to digest both aesthetically and culturally as a central location for the Hawkesbury, Blue Mountains and Sydney.

John has won many awards for his artworks and has held eleven very successful solo exhibitions and numerous joint exhibitions. He has works in private collections throughout Australia and abroad and is an exhibiting member of the Royal Art Society. John has almost forty years teaching experience and conducts regular workshops and demonstrations at his studio and for local art societies.
