So so happy to deliver ‘Lake McKenzie’ off to @itsjoshbradshaw and @charlie_karlsen this afternoon!! Adding a few finishing touches to ‘Soul Structure’ too so it’s looking Love getting to see my paintings in their new homes. Enjoy guys!
So this little piece here is currently on show at @artwavewest until 22nd Dec. (See bio) It’s titled ‘Mount Doom’ and this is because it is THE Mount Doom from Lord of the Rings, which I happened to climb ♀️ Now, I may have painted a nice little picture of it, but it was legit one of the hardest things I have EVER done. This view of the mountain sticks in my mind though, it was FIRST thing in the morning, the sun was just coming up and I’ll be honest, from that view at the bottom, it looks too beautiful to be the scary, sweaty, physically exhausting, thing it turned out to be. No lie. So, this is the before shot. If I were to paint the after, it would probably be a black, angry mess of paint But there is a MASSIVE sense of achievement from that day nonetheless, so I had to fit a painting in from the experience somewhere!
