Souls of the Forest
After the birth of my first child, Ella Bear, my mind has been brimming and germinating like wild fire with creativity. Between reading and feeding the Souls of the Forest, started in 2006, has been forming in my head. The idea is to paint how it feels to be in the old ghost gum forest of home. Trying to emulate the old people standing still in this silent landscape.
As this painting starts many ideas come to mind of ideas to portray. Maybe a few poppy flowers to commemorate my grandfather and great grandfathers tragedy at war. A silent barn owl flying through undetected. The idea of the souls of the forest returns, lets see where it wants to go.
