The Story behind this painting.
On Australia day 2019 I spent the weekend kayaking in the inlet at the Walpole Nornalup National Park. I had visited the inlet many times before to know that this particular day was a day of rare calm where wind, light and seasonal conditions made for a perfect combination. The inlet was glassy, the wind was resting. We stopped on a small island in the middle of the vast watery expanse and this old Paperbark standing proud, caught my attention.
