New Painting - a big thank you Vicky. This is the first of two paintings that Vicky has modeled for. This one was such a beautiful pose that I just had to have a go at it by itself. The pose was one of four that we chose for the next painting that will be part of the "relationships' series - coming soon.

Sometimes you get an idea and you need to follow it through just to see if it works. I had this thought about the moment on a wave when someone takes off and hopefully gets onto the face. What if at the moment of take off you dropped in and the wave started barreling in both directions - I'm guessing you wouldn't even know. It all happens so fast that the choice is made before you know it was even there. However what if you could see, what would it look like. i thought I would experiment and this is what happened.


Evening nelson

'Nelson Evening.'

Acrylic on paper
490 X 330mm

After a gorgeous visit to Nelson during the summer in 2010, I was inspired to capture a sunset dropping behind the hills in Kahurangi National Park.


Right this was a bit of an experiment. I am really interested in trying to capture something of the place where the sea and the land meet. Water, sand, air all mingled together - led to the name 'Commingling.' I think this will be the first of a few attempts.
