Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

A beautiful New Zealand scene captured by my palette knife with a lot of texture, movement and reflective light. This original painting works well in a bedroom, living room, kitchen, hallway or office. The color palette and textured style fits in well with many decorating styles. Whangamata Beach is in the North Island, a few hours from Auckland, and is popular with locals and tourists. It truly is the most beautiful beach you have ever seen!

M Y B A C K G R O U N D:
All my paintings are oil on canvas, using mainly palette & painting knives, with thick application, bold strokes, painterly detail and rich colors.
The palette knife gives my art a unique combination of contrast, fluidity, depth, texture and impact. I do not typically use a brush, as I prefer the way I can mix buttery paints and smear them on my canvas with a flexible metal blade. The amazing thick texture achieved with the knife reflects the light more than a regular brush painting and gives a beautiful sense of movement, with subtle highlights.
I am originally from New Zealand, where the beauty of nature is unsurpassed. The luminescent beauty of my homeland inspires me and I feel it in every stroke. I try to reflect this in my work and invite you to enjoy it as I do.
