Literature & references:

Graeme Sturgeon, Michael Shannon, Painting and the Poetry of Daily Life, Craftsman House, 1990, see p. 35 - 6 for notes on the Queensland paintings:
"Shannon visited Queensland several times in the late 1960s, becoming interested in the unique qualities of the place and of the pictorial possibilities of the old style Queensland houses, standing high above the dense fields of sugar cane. Michael Shannons paintings and drawings, mainly of Queensland, are volatile and relaxed; where he places houses on stilts in a luminous blue or mauve, he achieves an air of buoyant weightlessness that is other-worldly. the buildings themselves, which look like improvisations, are rendered with light, improvised and appropriate sketchiness. He incidentally records the Queensland scene with poetic exactness and intelligence and can transmute a drab weatherboard house into something magically incandescent as well as retain the spirit of Queensland's vernacular architecture." 
Elwyn Lynn, the Bulletin, 13 May 1967, quoted in Sturgeon, op cit.
