Fallen Heysen

Paintings

Finalist

Oil, 75x100cm

The Cedars: strolling through historical landscape of Hans Heysen I came across a famous gum, fallen camouflaged amongst the scrub. It was sad to see such a significant tree end its life. It inspired me to resurrect it in this perspective and emphasise the cycle of life where nature willingly succumbs, the small lizard demonstrating its proportions.
