Description

The names of modern ships can be intriguing, so I have given this one a name typical of the genre. It is named for the Chinese deity Xi Wangmu - the Queen Mother of the West. In my image she is heading east out of the Hunter River, heading home into the sunrise. The abstracted striped style is something I have developed over recent years, a way of producing an abstract pattern while still encompassing a recognisable subject.
