Ready to Hang
I needed a break after doing a small detailed painting, so I pulled out a large canvas and started playing with the paint on the canvas. I had an idea in mind but that quickly went out the window. I let the coloured background dry and then pulled out shapes I could see using thin black lines. I then added some shading to bring out the shapes. It was a fun process.
I grew up on a farm in a small coastal city in New Zealand, surrounded by green paddocks, trees and animals with Mount Taranaki as my backdrop. I have always delighted in nature and the act of creating; the two are deeply connected for me. I relish in finding glimpses of beauty in my daily life and this is what I hope to capture in my paintings.
