New commission piece - Haven

2018 Haven.JPG

I'm pleased to have delivered my latest commission piece to its new owner this week.  I have not had much opportunity to get into the studio of late, with the recent arrival of my brand new baby girl into the world, so I am glad to see this work now reach its new home.

This piece, titled Haven, is a serene seascape from Taranna, on the Tasman Peninsula, looking across Norfolk Bay to Mt Wellington on the horizon.

The client chose this view, and requested a painting that depicted the calmness and tranquillity so common to the area, with an emphasis on reflections and the landscape fading into the distance.  I chose to add the sense of drama in the building clouds as the Tasman Peninsula is notorious for its moody weather conditions.   

The good news is that commissioning a painting is easier than you may think!  Contact me if you're interested in having a painting made for your home, or as a gift for someone special in your life.

I am currently working towards several new exhibitions and markets for later in the year, including the Etsy Made Christmas Market in November at Princes Wharf 1, on the Hobart waterfront.  Stay tuned for updates as I progress towards these new projects for 2018!
