‘Moonlight Gum Blossoms’

Acrylic on canvas

76cm x 50.5cm




This painting has been inspired by this season of spending time at home. I have had the time to slow down and appreciate the amazing beauty of where we live. I have been fascinated by light and the drama this adds to an already dramatic landscape.


How does your work engage with the theme ‘The World at Home’?

I have spent these last months exploring and appreciating this wonderful backyard. I have taken time to learn about the local flora and enjoyed watching the seasons change in the Heath. This particular piece speaks to noticing some of the more common place flora, and taking the time to appreciate and notice the way it interacts with the changing light around it.
