Watercolours and acrylic on canvas work comes together in an exhibition that explores the beauty of nature on our doorstep.
Maria La Grue has been a full time artist for more than 10 years, and only moved to the Launceston area from Flinders Island 12 months ago.
Her landscape work from Flinders Island has slowly transitioned to the broader landscape here, of the West Tamar, and can be seen in the exhibition Ink Lines at Windsor Gallery.

"However, I do think I still have some Flinders Island in me to get out," she said.
La Grue moved to a place in Launceston that did not have much space, so while creating the exhibition she did much of her work on one long, continuous scroll which she then chopped up later.
The exhibition consists of 25 works, of which four have sold so far.
However, the artist finds showing her work difficult.
"You feel like you're exposing yourself because it does come from your soul," she said.
"The selling and the doing are completely separate. Ultimately you want to sell, but it's not about selling when you are making it."
The large paintings show La Grue's more serious side, with the smaller work more illustrative.
The exhibition will run until February 26 at the gallery.
