The Tide of Change
It's been a very cold winter here in the south of New Zealand, with the grey cold days far out numbering the bright, light filled ones.
My moods ebb and flow with the seasonal changes which in turn influence my creative work. My refuge, my place to go to restore balance and recharge is our beach cottage at Kaka Point, on the Otago coast. The cottage is nestled into the hillside overlooking the sea.
We wander up the beach and through the rock pools in all weathers and tides.
My favourite time of day to wander up the beach is at dusk when the first stars are twinkling and the sky is a pale wash of pinks and blues. There is time and space to think.
A special encounter....the rising 'blue moon' emerging from the ocean.
My time spent here at the beach has inspired me to turn in a new direction with my art, to make a new alignment with what makes me feel balanced and in tune. I'm inspired to capture the natural beauty, storms and mist, tranquillity, the colours and textures of my seaside haven.....to capture it's moods.
I have explored this landscape through mixed media before, so I can begin where I left off.
Looking forward to sharing my journey and work in progress with you.
