“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.

Newly painted in the studio

I’ve been making a bit more time for myself to be creative in my studio and have just yesterday completed 2 new paintings. It’s a relief to get back into art making again as I’ve been devoting a lot of time to the gardening project, but sometimes the need for art creation comes to the fore and I follow my instincts! The new paintings reference my love for the natural world and my experience of it, but are also very abstracted in format. It’s more about feeling the place and creating an abstract impression of this…called expressionism actually! Paint marks made on the canvas are significant in all my work…they point to abstracted ideas of objects, people etc. but also serve to lead the eye on a journey across the paintings, and to linger in areas that can be explored more. One artwork is a small forest painting, the other a beach. Both are refreshing and sustaining places to visit. “Forest wandering 1” is priced at $340 and is 40x30cm in size; the other is titled “Beach stroll”, a much larger painting, and priced at $995. Its’ size is 92x60cm. Both were a great joy to paint! Please reach me on my contact page if you’re interested in making a purchase.

New Gallery!

I’ve just added Gallery 3 to my main menu. It displays Mandala Wall Art. Here’s some examples; Lots of work to create but I’m very happy with this project.
