New Years Day at the Beach aka Busselton Jetty
Its summer time in Australia. It's also school holidays and Christmas/New Year public holidays, that means a lot of time to enjoy and explore the beautiful region that I live in. This piece was inspired by a trip to Busselton Jetty. The "jetty" has it all, a underwater viewing platform, beaches, grassed areas, cafes and restaurants, a little train to take you for a scenic ride...kids play grounds.
New Years Day At the Beach aka Busselton Jetty is painted in the style of the well known Australian Artist - Ken Done. It is colourful, loose and child like and explores the "feeling of the jetty". I use sgraffito, it's a favourite style of mine to use , I haven't noticed Ken Done use this.
91 x 91 cms it ready to fly to its new forever home.
**a print, on aluminum, of this piece will feature at "Art on the Jetty " in Henley SA later this year.
