I walk the beach at Lacey’s next door to
the mouth of Currumbin Creek each day and I love to watch the surfers catching
their waves. Alongside Currumbin Creek,
Lacey’s is a popular spot for serious surfers.
Painted in oil with cold wax medium on a
cradled board. This is another piece in my Smaller Art Collection. I create
these small pieces for those homeowners who do not have wall space for large
pieces of art. I believe everyone should
live with art, I hope these small pieces enable them to live with art in their
Most Australians live near the coast so going to
the beach is a popular leisure activity. I live on the Gold Coast so I
regularly paint sun surf and sand.
I love the human form; this piece shows a local sun loving
species in its natural habitat. Two
figures are revelling in the sun, soaking up its warmth; his face is turned toward
the sun however she is obeying Australia’s slip, slop and slap slogan and wears
a hat to shade her face.
Do you feel their languid repose as they nearly melt into
the sand – life’s a beach!
‘Black Crows’ is an
intriguing image painted in a modern style. Yellow, black and purple.
Painted in a
contemporary manner, I was inspired to paint this piece after hearing the crows
that are always calling each other in our neighborhood,
It is a little menacing, but intriguing. I have used many layers of black yellows and ochres with hints of purple to represent the depths of the trees in the bush they reside in. The crows rule the bush and protect their territory against intruders.
