The original painting now belongs to a happy art-lover who is going to hang it in his daughter’s room.
I donated Ocean Fairytale to the Child Cancer Foundation / Waikato Society of Arts Charity Art Auction on November 7 2013 in Hamilton, NZ.
My framed original painting was displayed alongside artworks by many amazing,
legendary New Zealand (a.k.a Kiwi) artists like Dick Frizzell and Buck Nin…
so I feel a little bit elated. It feels incredibly good knowing that my feeling good and having fun while creating my work ends up making someone happy.
(The painting is a framed, signed A3 original acrylic on 300gsm archival paper)
Remember your childhood dreams, and hold close your inner mermaid – surf siren.
She glides, plays and tumbles with her brethren of the Oceans: at one with her natural world,
feeling safe and having fun while exploring the unknown.
What is it like to see what it looks like
on the other side of the wave
watching from the surface: the feeling only a surfer knows
when you see an approaching crest of water gracefully peel off and crumble into white
foam from one end to the other…and for that short moment
where everything moves so fast and yet so slow…
when you are gliding on and along the glassy curtain…you get a quick peak into
this other world…where you may be lucky enough to see
beautiful sea-creatures…and perhaps a fellow mermaid…
Pretty. Surf. Ocean. Love.

I found both her work in science and her work in art excellent and I encouraged her to continue both activities which she has obviously been doing since going to New Zealand.
