Description


This book shows off the art of Elaine Allen who always use her maiden name Roennfeldt when signing her art. Elaine was a prolific painter, painting at every opportunity in water colours and during her 52 year stay in Kalamunda her husband estimates that she painted in excess of 1,000 paintings. Elaine married David Allen and they have three daughters. As well as attending to the needs of her family, she has managed to carry on with her painting and an active membership with the Kalamunda Arts and Crafts Group. Two or three times a week Elaine met up with fellow artists: Anne Silverton, Helen Sounness and Jean Mc Diamid and they visited numerous locations seeking out subjects of interest to paint: 'anything falling down or rusting away, very old homes and places with atmosphere like bush fires, water, mist and smoke'. Most of Elaine's art is of old houses and trees, bush scenes and landscapes of Kalamunda and surrounds and includes the vineyards in the Swan Valley, horses in local paddocks, the Swan River, views of Perth from Maylands and The Hills and beaches.
