This was an experiment in collaboration. The concept and original idea was initiated by AalixR, an art buddy here in Kerikeri. AalixR chose the colour palette, composition and structure. I continued with embellishments and interpretation, and completed the painting how I saw it to be. An interesting result!!This piece has plenty of texture and is a celebration of Matariki'....the Maori new year! Measures 45cm X 45cm
    This is an old one that I revamped. Much better now I think. She is not green anymore!! Of course I modelled her on myself..........NOT! She is holding a teeny, tiny cage! Measures 1020mm X 780mm
