“Reef light” complete

“Reef light” is the latest work from my studio. In this small painting I’m working to evoke the spirit, the essence of being underwater on the Barrier reef. The colour expresses this experience in the lower light of night time. Some lighter colour allude to filtered light through the water. Use your imagination to feel as if you’re floating through a coral cave and enjoying the moody colours and energy of the underwater reef. This piece comes from my memory of swimming on the reef and other underwater experiences. It’s priced at $370(AUD) and is 30x30cm. The medium is acrylic paint on stretched linen.

Two new abstractions

I’ve just completed two abstractions a couple of days ago. One was inspired by our visit earlier in the year to Underwater World on the Sunshine Coast. I loved the jellyfish there, amongst other creatures. Finally this artwork has arrived, rising into conscious creation, and I’m very pleased with it. It’s titled “Their underwater world”. The second painting is titled “Blue space”. Some strong feelings were coming up before I painted these, and the brushstrokes are reflecting this, although I completed them in a much better frame of mind than I started….remember my blog post earlier in the year about “Art as therapy; therapy as art”? Well, this seems to fit that picture, especially “Blue space”. I’m posting the images here for you to enjoy.
