Experimenting with oils for the next NZ Art Show, really feels like a child in rapturous awe and excitement again for the first time in an age. The freedom to be able to create and get in touch with that fire, without any constraints or need for huge amounts of attention to detail and deadlines, as with my previous job in the film industry, has been a breath of fresh air. The dual nature of my personality has seen to it that my love of illustration take a breath also and here is the preliminary sketch of Ella Dream Flying. My childhood was filled with dreams of flying and the image of a twilight night flight atop a barn owl seems a somewhat delicious one to me. Painting to follow.
