The Australian bushfires of 2019-20 created headlines around the world and filled newsfeeds with awful stories of towns, lives and wildlife lost. Painting in the depths of our winter, the hot colours began to take on the shape of the land I was hearing so much about, and feeling such compassion for. The painting will be part of an exhibition of new work this Spring and I will have smaller prints available as well.
I missed the deadline to apply to Spring Fling this year. This is the long explanation of how life (and death) got in the way.
