This painting is inspired by a local place called Penguin Island which is just off the coast of Rockingham a suburb of Perth, Western Australia.
As I was painting these gorgeous guys, the song of the same name came on my playlist with the lyrics...
"...(Go West) life is peaceful there
(Go west) in the open air
(Go west) where the skies are blue
(Go west) this is what we're gonna do
(Go west, this is what we're gonna do, go west)
we will love the beach
(Together) we will learn and teach
(Together) change our pace of life
(Together) we will work and strive..."
This is very much my motto in life, especially living with such beautiful habitat so close to home here in Western Australia.
This piece is full of beautiful textures in the rocks and the sand which gives it a sense of depth.
This painting is the second in my Australian Water & Fauna Series, and is painted on a gallery wrapped canvas, sealed with varnish, comes ready to hang and with a Certificate of Authenticity.
