This is an oil painting on a custom-made canvas panel. It sits in a black pine floating frame. Felt pads have been placed on the back corners to protect your wall and D-rings and wire has been attached making ready to hang. This painting comes with its unique story and a certificate of authenticity.
“Take Me There” was inspired by photos of hiking trips up Mount Bogong way. There were beautiful Billy Buttons (Craspedia) dotted in the landscape that really caught my eye. 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. The colour yellow is often associated with fun, joy and energy … maybe that’s why I feel happy looking at them.
This painting tries to capture the utter peace you get when you sit in the middle of nature and take in the surrounds. What can you see? What can you smell? What can you hear? You soak up the glorious sun that shrouds you in warmth and love … and you feel your soul being nurtured by mother nature … and find peace. I hope this painting can take you there to get a sense of these feelings too!
Please let me know if you would like to see more photos.
