THE JUNGLE PAINTING
The Jungle Painting
This painting is another example of Romantic Idealism - which is a phrase I invented to explain my art. In the background you see Bunker Bay, and this is the view from the lookout which is one of my favorite places to paint and draw. In the foreground there are all the happy people coming to a party.
The Jungle Pattern
After many years of creating pictures about lush abundance I created a series of iconic motifs that I repeat over again in my art. These shapes have become part of the psyche of my artistic journey. I love the pattern - and draw it, paint it and carve it - I would love to eventually grow it.
