SKU: 0000010
Everywhere I go, I do get my self lost in the environment trying to find an expressive notion to relate my emotions at that point in time as I was at the sea side I visualise our life as a visitor. 
A quote from the aboriginal proverb-
"We are all visitors to this time, this place.
We are just passing through.
Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love... 
And then we return home"
-Aboriginal Proverb
by migrants in their search for better life through their journey on d sea. All protocol observed on my arrival and my welcome was pleasantly addressed. This is a series I would be working on to portrait my feelings for many that we've lost on the sea migrating in search for greener pastures & security.
I was on the location to chill out preparing for a great outdoor painting the next day. Thought about life on d sea how risk people have endanger themselves however, if they finally arrived, how would their welcome be... As inspiration develops, series of photos were taking and this I felt could best distinct my composition, having elements of the sea and land. Back to my studio to make a sketch on canvas from the photos I took. My painting process has been juxtaposing colour with palette knife and has gone through stages to impressionistically defined it.
