Three women enjoying an afternoon on a dock on a lake. A memory of last summer and Gauguin’s Tahitian work, especially the painting, ‘Fatata Te Miti’, 1892, inspired this piece.
New commission-for dove -variations in placement and for rooster reworked face and legs to express the right attitude. Also ended up having to attach more hardboard to give more space to the image. The client wants a finished, realist painting instead of gestural so there’s more amending to do.
Clownfish are so interesting! They have a symbiotic relationship with sea anemones- living amongst their poisonous tentacles, keeping them clean. In turn they’re offered protection. Clownfish also change genders during their lifetime. This painting is dedicated to someone I’m in love with:-)
