Oil on canvas

610mm x 610mm




I have found comfort in the serenity and wonder of the natural environment at home this year.In this colourful close up of a flowering gum I have been experimenting with the effects of different Mediums .This painting expresses my wonder at the attraction of the flower to the pollinator.


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

During this period I have spent my time in isolation at home on our farm . I have found comfort in these times in my connection with the natural environment . I have always had a strong need to be outdoors and to feel a part of the environment and during this period my garden has soothed me and provided an outlet and inspiration.
