I was searching around Fogg Dam, near Darwin, and recorded unusual plants to put into a study. This same natural beauty surprises us here in the Southern Highlands. Many of the subjects are from Kangaloon and surrounds: winter lichen, seeds, native plants, Aboriginal stones, local birdlife, moths and butterflies. The painting took six months to complete but I enjoy the spirit and detail of these old rainforest areas as a place to work in, with all the abstract forms they possess.
