Artwork Description

Mixed Media on canvas, stretched and ready to hang

Signed on the back

This is a large abstract painting on canvas ready to hang on your beautiful wall.

This original painting allows you to come in close and experience the joy of colours inspired by sea and sky. It has a slightly out of focus look formed by gestural brush marks, lush glazes and a subtle texture. I love using this colour palette. The sublime turquoise, seductive ultra-marine, emeralds, the soft fluffy whites and creamy yellows. Delicious.

What lies below the surface. What lies above the surface. Inspired by the ocean surface from high above as well as the reflection of clouds and sky on the surface of tranquil waters. So still but always movement underneath. Like clouds floating in and out of focus.
Water as a subject, context and formal element seems to so often find its way back into my artwork. It reveals my passionate love of the sea and all things water. Whilst this painting appears abstract, it reflects a profound influence of the locale where I grew up – overlooking Bass Strait from a hilltop at Flinders. Here I am inspired by the cloud formations drifting in from the immense southern horizon. The reflected cloud patterns on the water. The hint at imminent downpours. Under currents and drifts. The movement and flow of all things air and water. The storms above and below the surface. Patterns on the macroscopic scale. I find all these things meditative and worthy of contemplation.

What I enjoy most about my paintings is they make people smile with a sense of wonderment and feelings of happiness as well as making their walls bright and beautiful for years to come.

ALL PAINTINGS ARE VARNISHED with Professional Quality Artists Varnish, once they have been photographed. This gives a protective surface and an exquisite sheen that really makes the colours powerful & eye-catching.
The painting is on linen wrapped around traditional wooden stretcher bars with edges that are a smart 3.5cm deep out from your wall.
The edges are cleaned, staple free and painted a rich black to compliment this artwork.
Ready to put on your wall with hanging wire on back.
