This painting is a view of Waewaetorea island, over looking Waewaetorea channel. I was standing on Urupukapuka island in New Zealand's northland as I took the photo I painted from. The bay of Islands in the north is very special to me. I grew up there as a child and my family have lived there for generations.
This painting shows the watery space between one land form and another, and symbolically for me holds a felt experience of the many transitions we make in our lives. Some bigger at times than others.
