Polar Splash – Original Art and Fine Art Prints

A surreal oil painting of a water glass standing on a cornflower blue table top against a light blue background, with a splash of water leaping up out of the glass from the impact of a falling ice cube on which a polar bear is standing looking forward, with splashed water on the table top. The left side of the glass has a slice of orange contrasting with the dominant blue colour.

Oil on canvas   75cm x 60cm   US$ 850 (NZ $1500)

I was reading an art blog which said that people stop to look for longer at paintings of citrus. Which got me wondering – “Why citrus, apart from the appealing colours?” As I mused, thought about citrus which led to thinking of slices of lemon in a glass with ice. Which got me thinking about ice, and because I am passionate about conservation and wildlife, my mind leapt to polar ice, and polar bears – and the concept for the “Who would like some more ice” series was born.
