This was my entry for the Yellow Pages Art Awards. The brief was “show us what you love about where you live” on a square-shaped artwork. For me, that is the beach and the view of Kapiti Island. Among other things, of course. The image shows my eye, with an image of a Kapiti beach and Kapiti Island.

This entry didn’t make the finals but that’s ok by me, I love it anyway!! :)

All resources used my own, taken on my Canon Powershot A480 P&S. Proudly New Zealand-made. :)
