Joy

 Commissioned for Xanadu Wines for their commemorative wines box celebrating 40 year birthday.   I imagined the Southern West Australian landscape around Margaret River, a place I've stayed many times. It's hard to visually recreate that feeling when you've unpacked your gear and you're sitting on the balcony with your friends with a glass of wine, seconds away from that wonderful sigh.   So I took focus on the landscape, which is always colourful and moves in a relaxing rhythm. I wanted it to be bright and happy with lots of colour and texture. When the cork is popped, I wanted people to pick up the commemorative box. Take in the painting and enjoy a marriage of art and fine wine.  "Joy" 2017   Mixed media on canvas  31cm x 41cm  COMMISSION
