nice colors and squuiggles…makes for a very pleasing painting
I like your lavender trees.
Thanks Rhonda & Janey.
When you call it ‘lavender’ I found that unsettling. You are right no doubt, but I grew up with these trees, and they have never seemed lavender to me. They have that ghostly Australian bush shade, and if that comes through in my picture – that’s great.
Then I got thinking what an iconic and somewhat thrashed a subject gum trees are for Australians (I am Australian even after 40 years in New Zealand).
I grew up with pictures (prints in class rooms etc.) by Albert Namatjira, and loved them.
In New Zealand I seem to want to do flax, also a sort of national icon. I love walking in the bush, climbing mountains, & I realise that these images are symbolic for a connection with the land, not just any land but the land I grew up in.
I will keep going with these. There is another gumtree inspired one here.
