By participating in this project I visualize an art piece in the environment relating to my natural surrounding at Narooma.  I started to develop an art piece multimedia with a subject theme of moths that I noticed at the beach that had been stranded there and died.  They were beautiful in my eyes and I wanted to capture the moment before they disappeared for ever and painted the moths in the art form of my choice a textured sand background gave the moths a chance to live on through my painting.
