Nature's Fabric

Paintings
Finalist

Oil on board, 90x90cm

Husk from a Red Cabbage Palm, Livistona maiae, Palm Valley, Northern Territory.

Red dirt, red rocks,

Sticky flies, stinking hot!

Textual layers,

Visual feast.

Reflective, primeval, eternal,

Reptilian inhabitants,

Nature at its harshest

Nature's fabric at its most splendid!

Palm Valley,

An oasis in the Red Centre!
