Splashes of fire in my Garden? While they started in a small plot, over the years they have spread to most areas of my garden. They have sprouted in-between rocks, in pot plants that were for others and even under the hedge.Little trumpets of determination letting me know that they have arrive once again, the always local freesia were exploding in reds, oranges, yellows and pinks. They started small, but over time have spread their colours throughout the garden. They are everywhere, never fail to please and continue to fulfil their destiny with numerous flowers and seeds for a future.

The back waters of our local lagoon (Avoca Lagoon) secludes itself from visitors and tourists. Even locals sometimes.
 Far from the crashing beach entrance and the energetic dogs and noise of the children, this is where the quietness of water, light and shadows come to rest around sleepy islands. 
All different physical elements but all appear to be in peaceful balance with each other.  Time to sit, draw and let the surroundings paint themselves. 

All the elements seem to be sharing part of themselves with each other and the shadows are only extensions of light, water and a mirage of an island. Phantoms of a physicality that draws you into illusions of light, space, shade and shadows. 
The Back Waters have their own magic that is best experienced without the crowds and a timepiece.
This painting has been inspired by the view from the lookout  (Lincoln Rock) at Wentworth Falls in the Blue Mountains NSW.  It forms  part of the Blue Mountain Series series of that relates to the blue mountains.

The afternoon shadows  envelop most of the landscape, imparting a sense of tranquility and quietude.  However, the higher peaks and hills in the distance are untouched by the shadows. Bathed in  golden light, these elevated forms seem to emanate warmth and radiance. The light, elegantly traces its way across the  terrain and extends  to the distant ridges.  

In the foreground, small native shrubs,  red grevillea and yellow 
 wattle, stretch out beneath the observer's feet. 
Their textured details  contrast against the backdrop of the deep  and shaded valley.   

The tranquility of the valley, the radiant hills, and the gnarly native shrubs collectively inspire a sense of awe and wonder.Horizontal Lily  pads floating in a blue Pond.
The sunlight is streaming through the reeds at the far end of the lily pond.
