Some great Studio News this month. Some of my recent works have found a happy place to be hung. I delivered them last week to a new boutique, Homewares/Gallery in Terrigal. So if you are in the area pop into Urban Eclectic on the corner of Kurrawyba Ave and Wilson Road and take a look. The link to their website is mainly about their silver jewellery at their previous shop.
Here are the paintings being hung there:
Peony Perfection 40″x 40″ Oils On Canvas
Spring 18′ x 18″ – Oils On Canvas
Floating Free 22 x 22″ Oils On Canvas
Altered Blooms 18″x 18″ Oils On Canvas
The gallery also has some unique, mexican jewellery, along with a range of quality eclectic homewares, which I will bring to you in another post,

Julie and I spent much of last Sunday, toting flyers for the exhibition all over the coast near Norah Head. We started off with a good omen – this wonderful rainbow in the sky!
I put together this short video of our Sunday morning deliveries.
In case you missed the invitation – here it is again. Please come along if you are in the area – I would love to meet you so please come and introduce yourself on the opening night or at the SUnday Brunch on the 19th if you are going to come to that.
I look forward to seeing you there!

….was finished this week after a bit of a rework – not a major one though. Mt Taranaki, which I must confess I still think fondly of as Mt Egmont is a volcano on the West Coast of the North Island in New Zealand. Here is the painting in it’s various incarnations.
The Underpainting ……
Mt Taranaki II
Is it finished yet?

A bit more tweaking is required.

It is interesting, the evolvement – is that a word ( I wonder), of a painting. Why take the trees out and change the light . The question becomes – what is the painting about. As soon as you put a poplar tree in there, the hand of man is felt. It is a distraction from the essence of the landscape. The painting is still about the light, but more subtly. It is about the bones of the land, it’s magic and it’s majesty perhaps….. or it could be about something else entirely – as the viewer – you must decide.

I was amazed that I managed to find so many smaller paintings in the ‘Secrets’ painting. The colour in these works was were softer than the original and the areas more highly developed. The meeting developed from this area of ‘Secrets.’
As in the other works in this series, the figures became more clearly defined as I worked on the painting. The colours were softer and the figures became contained within a landscape. Here is the completed painting, ‘The Meeting.’ It measures 28″x24″ and as usual is oils on canvas. This painting is available for sale for $840.
