Happy New Year & Welcome to 2009

"Study for girl at the door", 2009-2010
Oil on linen on board, 12.5 x 18 cm (5 x 7 inches)

A symbolic painting for my first small artwork for 2009. It is a study for my new work and pictures to be in my upcoming show in Canberra this year.

To set the scene : A beautiful young woman is seen standing at a door, which is held slightly ajar. The way is clear, she is holding some items in a box from previous years and is about to step through the doorway into a new beginning.

As always my work reflects what I'm going through and feeling and very much see 2009 as a new beginning for me.
