Artwork Description

Acrylic on stretched canvas, ready to hang.

Signed on the front.

When we travel home down the coast, we usually camp for a night on a farm at Tostaree. The barn is available for guests to use- set up a bit like an old tavern, with rustic tables, a big fireplace, and a friendly atmosphere. The walls are covered with memorabilia, pictures and stories about local and family history. Among these, I saw a photo of our host, his son and another farmer droving sheep in the 1980s. I asked for permission to use the photo as reference for a painting ... and here it is.
The bush setting, the muted colours in the old photo and the story it told reminded me of paintings by some of my favourite Australian Impressionist artists.

All art by Amaria Stark

Dwarfed by the tall rocky walls of the Konyu cutting, or "Hellfire Pass", a lone gentleman walks away from the viewer. A survivor of the POW camps in World War 2 retracing old memories, or a family member paying their respects?Red and purple cliffs, bathed in golden desert light form a background for a green waterhole surrounded by gumtrees. A Regent Honeyeater perches among the blossoms and leaves of a gum tree, head slightly tilted as though listening.A green Swift parrot with red and turquoise markings perches on the branch of a melaleuca tree against a soft, mottled background.
