This week I received from P & J of Coogee this video which showcases the delighful paintings of American artist Robert Duncan. I thought these images would make a lovely way to relax over the weekend and to think about the special people in your life and those special moments we all hold close in our hearts.

Robert Duncan was born in Salt Lake City in 1952 and grew up in a large family of ten children. He spent the summers helping his grandparents on their 10,000 acre cattle ranch in Wyoming. The Green River ran through their land from its source high in the Rocky Mountains. It was surrounded by beautiful open country and he fell in love with the rural lifestyle. He drew constantly from the age of five, and when he was eleven, his grandmother gave him his first set of paints and paid for three oil painting lessons. He studied art at the University of Utah and had worked as a commercial artist before his full-time dedication to the fine art of the American West. (
