For the final year of my Fine Arts study I will be working in depth on a single subject. I’ve chosen the local creek, Mudgeeraba Creek, which is a beautiful little spot. There will be a lot more creek paintings coming up in future months. At this point I am trying out a variety of approaches. Hopefully along this journey I will discover my own special way of interpreting this subject.
Inspired by an old photograph of a Zigfield Follies girl, as I painted this femme fatale she started to remind me of the story of Salome, and especially of Oscar Wilde’s magic and disturbing play.
