Time Is Of The Essence

Description : Time is of the Essence is a painting I have wanted to do for some time. The Eastern Quoll sits on top of an old fob watch trying to stop the time ticking away in the hope of saving his species from disappearing . The eastern quoll is a medium sized carnivorous marsupial native to Australia, formally known as the eastern native cat. Eastern quolls were once found wild all over mainland Australia for millions of years. They have been EXTINCT on mainland Australia for over 50yrs and can be found wild only in Tasmania. But in March 2018, 20 eastern quolls were reintroduced into Booderee National Park, NSW. Managed by traditional owners of the land who believe that the eastern quoll who once roamed the mainland of Australia, deserve the right to again call it home. This is proving to be successful so far. I have painted this canvas with acrylic paint and it is protected with a gloss varnish which I love to use as it brings out the depth in colour. This canvas is 3cm thick and only has to be framed if you want to, and it arrives to you ready to hang with a letter of authenticity.

     Catherine Barolo is a self taught artist living in Melbourne, Australia.  

Catherine has been drawing ever since she was little.  A quiet child who would draw for hours and hours escaping life in the 1970's suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia.

     Her paintings and stories were full of fairies, goblins and all types of animals, flowers and mythical creatures she would make up from her fantasy world she loved and imagined happened!


      Fast forward to 2022 and Catherine is happily married with 4 almost grown children and her dog Coco.  It has only been in the last two years Catherine has found time to concentrate on her art.  Catherine is a self taught artist and has exhibited her work in Melbourne and continues to sell her original paintings, prints and commissioned art through her website.  Catherine either works off her own photos or asks photographers permission to use their photos as reference.  Catherine loves to paint in acrylic and now teaching herself to paint digitally.  Each painting is carefully thought and planned out, subject, colour and composition to tell its unique story all in as much detail as she can.
