She glides across the ocean bringing joy and fare. Size and shape are predestined by her intended task to tackle the ever-changing elements of a restless sea of the demanding self-examination of one's personal life.

The underlying shape and purpose may remain the same. Her style and presentation to task will be forever changing as the She. A day at the beach should be a celebration of difference not a comparison of parts.

A mid-year cruise around the Melbourne docklands on the MV Elizabeth Anne inspired an interesting dilemma for this basically figurative painter. I often commence a work with a flowing line - for example a hair style. This early observation may evolve into a character where Art = Life.
