Bushtrack #1 915cm x 1240cm Mixed media on canvas 2009
There was a track in the heathland part of the bush near us that was composed of this fine white powdery dust. We never really thought about why it was so different to the other fire trails we walked, but then we were kids and more interested in animals and wildflowers. I wanted to celebrate this track which has come back to me as an adult as a wonderful memory of the bush. This painting is now overlooking Darling Harbour, which seems strange but nice to think of a bit of bush in there.
