WaveJumpers

Love of water and the sea is a strong theme in Jen’s allegorical paintings.
The series, ‘WaveJumpers’ expresses joy the artist feels every walk on the beach and
surf in the ocean on holidays with her dogs and family.

Let’s leave the city way back there   
And fly up the highway with the wind in our hair
Singing out of tune, we’ll be there by noon
I’m a Currimundi baby, I’m a Currimundi baby, baby

Watching from the dune all that sun, sand, sea
Racing down the beach and feeling so free
Diving under water, cool, riding the roller
I’m a Currimundi baby, I’m a Currimundi baby, baby

I know why it is I love this place so
The moment I’m here I’m right in the flow
Hot sounds of the surf, breeze cool from the north
I’m a Currimundi baby, I’m a Currimundi baby, baby

Late shadows lengthen along the sand rim
The creek fills with dogs for their afternoon swim
It’s time to go, as the sun sets low
I’m a Currimundi baby, I’m a Currimundi baby, baby

Washing off the salt in the outside shower
Laughing and yarning over barbeque hour
A bottle of red, the moon’s soft bed
I’m a Currimundi baby, I’ll always be a Currimundi baby, baby
