Kingfisher

 

Tracey Lee Cassin

This is one of my most favourite artworks I have created that is not a seascape.

But it still has an association with the sea.

From the start to finish, the process was rewarding and fun. Walking on Ohope beach a little piece of tin was poking up from the sand. Like a treasure hunt, it was dug from the sand. And it was beautiful. Bent and battered with painterly patterns from its travels in the ocean. I instantly had this vision of what I would do with it. And thus it became: "Contemplating Flight #3" - oil on tin and ply. (Private Collection) The Maori people of New Zealand admired the kingfisher for being like a watchful sentry.
