Suspended in the deep – A Humpback Whale

Nov 17

Here is my new ‘Barnacled Whale  2014′.  A large Humpback Whale floating through the murky sea. This time I wanted to try using darker and deeper colours, and really build up the layers – i threw down quite a few different techniques – eggcups, acrylic stamping, the kitchen scrubbing brush, hose …. (techniques of my own inventions of course, ha ha.)

I hope he is enjoyed. I might actually do another one, with even more barnacles and some more surreal colour …

Kārearea / New Zealand Falcon Swoop

Oct 15

See him fly . This one i finished a little while back , it will be heading towards Soul Gallery in Hamilton in a couple of months for a still-in-the-works group show.  I wanted to add a lot more colour and excitement to the usually-brown-and-white falcon, and got carried away with a full on watercolour bouquet flourishing/swoop behind him …

French Alps, Ultramarine Blue, and White Roses

Oct 15

This one was inspired by my recent trip through the French Alps -and a cabin called Les Roses Blanches (The White Roses) in St. Gervais. So majestic. So fancy. End of summer, so only a little snow, and we could climb right up to the glacier.

I love the quaint French Style, so many flower baskets, crusty churches, and blue and white!
