"Coogee Beach" is part of my painting collection. The painting represents the transaction from winter to spring in Australia.
For me, winter is considerate to be a resting period. The transition between winter and spring, reveals rebirth: nature flourishing, birds singing, days are now longer and there's a nice scent.
The image of the painting represents a window facing the ocean, from this there's a majestic view of the sunset over the water and swallows flying above it. The feelings that arise when looking at such a view, especially from its own window are to me unique. There's a combination of elements with the environment that suggests its magic.
Water is a source of inspiration, more in particular oceans, this is because are so vast and give me the feeling of the unknown. Especially here in Australia, I have the chance to look and observe the ocean, here my feelings and thoughts become lost.
The vivid colors of the sunset is a pure representation of Australian sunsets.
The swallows represent the end of winter, and this is because they are coming towards us.
