D is For Dale
Oil on MDF
This is a postcard within a postcard or a painting within a painting if you like. The one pinned to the wall behind the bottles is from my colleague Marianne Muggeridge, and is a view of Mt Taranaki.

There seemed to be a lot of male/female elements going in this work and I toyed with the idea of calling it Anima Animus which is Jung's names for the male and female principle found in all of us. I can never remember which is which. A problem that only seems to get worse with age...
