My painting, titled Snakes And Ladders; 150 x 130 cm, acrylic on canvas, is selected as a finalist.
This painting originally took its subject from Bannaby Creek in the Southern Highlands. After a decade of no rain we now have fast, running, wild waters in this creek. It’s beautiful – with its twists and turns, over rocks and river stones. You can hear a cacophony of feral goats whilst being surrounded by a hundred Xanthorrhoea, or Balga Grass Plants. This painting is my tribute to the creek.
