Album Notes
Fingerpaintings was Michael's second CD - first released in 1993 - and now available to download for the first time, in 2015.

It's a collection of guitar instrumentals featuring 10 original tracks, plus covers of Classical Gas and Jessica. Tracks are split fairly evenly between electric and acoustic guitar as featured instrument, an indication of where Michael was stylistically at that time. (In all albums since Fingerpaintings, the acoustic guitar has become Michael's dominant 'voice')

Highlights include the evocative tracks 'South Country' & 'Country Towns', both inspired by the name-sake poems by acclaimed Australian writer Kenneth Slessor.

Quote from album liner notes:
"Fingerpaintings is a collection of guitar instrumentals inspired by people I have met, and places I have been to in my travels as a touring musician throughout 1992. Most of the tunes were formed in my mind when I remembered experiences that moved me. Whatever emotions I felt at the time, I have tried to convey musically. Many of these pieces are soundtracks for my memories, aural finger paintings…"
