Abstract No. 1 Acrylic on box canvas 12in. x 24in.
Playing with texture and a limited pallet. I wanted to create something abstract but that also carried a message. This painting contains several metaphors relating to a very significant event in my brother and sister in law's lives, and in part, my own as well.

Wellington City street 30.5 x 30.5cm
This was painted about a year ago. I decided to rework it and have basically overpainted the whole canvas. I adjusted the perspective, the cars and the texture of the brushwork. I think it is much improved, but you will just have to take my word for that.

'Rural Desperado's' 750mm x 250mm Acrylic
Several years ago I came across a row of rural letterboxes that looked as though someone had taken to them with a baseball bat, many were badly dented and twisted. I immediately saw them as a group of tough old bandits so I took many photos for future reference. Recently I decided to re-visit this idea and arranged the best of them in the sequence I wanted. I chose a plain background in order to not distract from the letterboxes. It was probably a bit of a whimsical theme but I liked the humor in the idea.
