Your paintings are very interesting. I specially like 'Untitled' Acrylic on canvas NZ$250 (torso of a woman in profile). Your style is reminiscent of Chagall.

Do you charge entry re your sculpture garden? You should.

Hey Cosmic, I sold the painting off the wall last week. Most times I paint the torso first but for that painting I already had the background painted and had fun incorporating the nude onto it. Thanks for the comparison to Chagall, love his blues and dreamy folksy subjects.
The sculpture garden is around the restaurant so free for all to enjoy. I run a sculpture symposium starting Nov.24th for a week where sculptors from around NZ are invited to come to the garden and make sculpture.
Regards too

Welcome Chuck, thanks for dropping by. I guess Michelangelo, Rodin, Maillol, Picasso, Nature herself. I get inspired by shapes no matter who makes them. Also the space between as in Japanese art and thought.
