Painting Paua / Abalone 

Cropped piece of large wall mural of NZ Seabed.

This was a real challenge. The perfectionist in me needed this to be exactly right, the feel of it, the colours everything had to be exactly as I sensed it should be and I was settling for nothing less. I painted over it three times completely wiping it out and starting again , before I manage to finally get on a roll that felt on the right track.

Relief! That is the feeling when everything else Floyd so easily with this painting and this is completely stopped me in my tracks. The end result I am thrilled with and it sits perfectly and balance with the rest of the painting.

I never know if one painting is going to become a series, until its finished and I feel there is something else inside of me.

This was the case with this series of lovelies.

They emerged / revealed themselves to me over the last couple of months, its been a total pleasure
