Inspiration from nature
Posted on January 24 2020
The shape and patterns of the natural environment around me play a big part in my art practice. Fallen leaves and branches, bark, twigs, rocks.
My next series is inspired by some eucalypt bark that was torn down from a beautiful Blue Gum tree on our property during a recent massive hail and wind event.
Reflecting on the extremes we are experiencing with our changed climate, I plan to paint lots of landscapes this year, abstracts mostly, but representational of the bush and land where I lived as a child, on the edge of Morton National Park, in a place called Meryla.
