Noosa First Point
120cm (w) x 150cm (h) acrylics and paper, original painting on canvas
Painted as a possible partner to "Noosa Granite", "Noosa First Point" was inspired by the annual Noosa Surf Festival. Pandanus, waves, Laguna Bay setting, the longboard and bikini. I set out to create a sense of playfulness, movement and colour. I added a vintage collage "strip" beneath because I wished to both depict the history and traditions that are at the root of surfing while at the same time giving a sense of that pleasurable feeling of immersing yourself in the natural world and the cool sea. Perfect for a place near the sea!
Signed in the lower right corner, the painting is stretched around a timber frame and the outer edges are painted black.
Title, number and signature is hand written on the rear of the canvas by the artist. Ready to hang.
This piece is currently exhibited at beautiful Manyung Gallery, Sorrento VIC and is available for purchase. Please contact the gallery direct or email Sarah for information.
