”Painting by the Sea” was painted on location beside the sea at the Hervey Bay Boat Harbour. I love the sea. I always have. I grew up and lived most of my life near Hervey Bay, on Badtjala (Butchulla) country. It makes me feel happy, free, at home to be by the sea here and I respectfully pay hommage to the Badtjala people whose land I live and work on, to their Elders - past, present, and emerging - and to their culture, stories, traditions, and connections to Country.

The varied shades of green in this painting are indicative of the shorefront’s vegetation, the blue and turquoise hues of the ocean, the brilliant white of the sea spray, and the violet late-afternoon shadows cast by the slowly setting sun. The direction of the brushstrokes and the drippy splashes of paint invoke thoughts of the rhythmic action of the ocean’s waves and its cool sea breezes. Lively dashes and dots of paint speak of my joy in painting beside the sea. It is my hope that this artwork will stir the same thoughts and emotions about the sea in those who choose to give it a new home.
