This is an oil painting on a custom-made wood panel. It is mounted on a pine frame ready to hang. This painting comes with its unique story and a certificate of authenticity.
“Billy Button Look-out” incorporates the natural wood of the wood panel as part of the trees. These have been coated in clear gloss varnish so you can see the wood grain.
This was inspired by the Billy Buttons (Craspedia) in our garden. They are also known as “drumsticks” and are in the daisy family. They are a beautiful native Australian plant with a beautiful buttery yellow glow which I have tried to capture in this painting. I also love the rolling pastures of the high country. But in this unusual year of 2020 with Melburnians being in strict lock-down for so long, it is a place of memories for many of us. This painting takes the liberty of combining the two places bringing the rolling pastures to your wall.
The colour yellow is often associated with fun, joy and energy … maybe that’s why I feel happy looking at them. I hope this painting brings you a sense of these feelings too!
