Life Saving Trials (at City Beach Perth) by 

Ok… so I decided to work on an abstract I am more comfortable with. Unlike my last entry this is a representational abstract, acrylic on canvas, size is approx
78cm x 62cm.

Original Sold.

Enjoy, smile and leave your feedback.

Oh, one last thing, the detail of paint layering is totally lost in this digital image, but isn’t it always?

My paintings are an exploration and expression of my personal emotions, interpersonal relationships and recollections of childhood; the human condition; and also influenced by my travel experiences and their influences on my senses as well as inspiration drawn from current fashion and pop culture.

My aim is to represent my world and express, with my chosen media the emotional moments, quirky twists and often humorous encounters of life.

    It’s very quirky, much better in real life, it loses all it’s depth when photographed, there are about 6 layers in this painting and you simply don’t see it on the internet. My favourite has to be the dog… can you see the resemblance to my greyhound… no, that’s ok, I am no picasso LOL!

    love this one.. the dog makes it for me… this has sort of a rin tin tin meets baywatch feel to it… but why do I get the feeling they are all smiling as they watch me drown?
