This is my latest big painting which I've called "To Life" - after watching the documentary on Oliver Sacks. An amazing man and great doco depicting his life. I also called it this as there is a sense of celebration and ease in this painting. The canvas measures 914x1219mm and I'm about to have it framed in an oak frame.
The landscape background is Ponui island as viewed from the back of Waiheke Island, and the flowers of course Pohutukawa - maybe my favourite flower. It really does have a stand out striking effect when hung on a large wall. When I look at it, its as if I'm looking through a window onto a beautiful summer's day outside.
