The Kennedy Ranges rise abruptly out of flat scrubland east of Carnarvon. The rocks forming the ranges were once deposited below the sea. Time has compressed them into sandstone and raised them up as a ridge. Solitary gum trees cling to rocks in defiance against the harsh climate, stands of Sheoak grow at the base and ancient plant communities hide in its gorges. The place has a petrified beauty and this painting combines my most prominent memories of it.
