The Story behind this painting
I spend a few days at Mount Gibson Reserve in July 2019 and walking up to the top of various low ranges provided expansive views across to Lake Moore and some of the open woodlands of that area. Much of the land is low scrub but there are pockets of woodland with majestic gums that rise out of the rose coloured earth on tall pale trunks that are visible from quite a distance. When seeing these woodlands from afar I am immediately drawn to them and want to explore them. Although the sky is a dominant factor in the wide open landscape, it is the formations and vegetation on land that interest me.
