Painter Mackay was a famous Australian singer and musician. His life spanned both his home town of Sydney and Australia as he went from one country to another. Like many artists, his musical influences included John Dylan, Peter Hook, George Harrison, Mick Jagger, Van Morrison, the Rolling Stones, and many others. For his music, he took several forms including folk, pop, country, rock, and even jazz.
Painter Mackay’s career spanned over thirty years during which he went from one tiny city to another in search of fame and fortune. He never achieved these things though, but he did create some fantastic songs that touched the hearts and minds of fans everywhere. One of his most well-known songs was titled “Mystery Train.” It’s about the escape artists face when he tried to get from one small town to another. The train never arrived, but what follows is his mystery: he gets drunk, jumps on the train, and begins the trip across Australia.
He began his journey by traveling through Western Australia, then on to Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, and eventually New Zealand. During this journey, he made a total of eleven films that all involved cars. The film “Young Guns” is a great example. It chronicles the rise of the band from local pub wannabes to one of the biggest band of all time. And Painter also found time to collaborate with such other creative people as author Rudyard Kipling and illustrator turned painter Edvard Munch.
When it came to his paintings, he remained focused and took on new challenges. When he was done with driving his car, he decided to go back into the world and paint instead. Although he enjoyed his work, he realized that he still had a long way to go in his career. As time passed, he began to paint watercolors and earn his first real commission. From that point forward, whenever someone asked him how he was doing, he was able to tell them about his life and how he painted his life.
Painter has always remained open to the many mediums of painting, and he has tried his hand at every canvas that he has sat down to paint. When he decided to start selling art, he knew that the Internet would be the perfect place for him to introduce his work to the public. It wasn’t long before he was making a steady income from his paintings, which are now selling for well over one million dollars.
As his success continues to grow, so will his numbers. So far, he has sold over one hundred paintings. He is one of the most successful and talented painters that Australia has ever seen.
