Artwork Description

Acrylic Paint on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the front.

Gumnut blossoms at their best. With thanks to Bec again for her lovely image.

"EUCALYPTS, OR GUM TREES, are the Australian trees – as much a part of the landscape as far horizons and sweeping plains. Yet most eucalypts aren’t the giant, gnarled trees that come to mind. There are more than 900 species, and their bark, leaves, flowers and fruit (gumnuts) come in endless combinations of size, form, texture and colour. Although they’re endemic to Australia and a few islands immediately to the north, many eucalypt species are cultivated in tropical and temperate regions elsewhere for a variety of uses.
Unlike many flowers, the gum blossom doesn’t consist of petals. The colourful bloom is provided by the stamens, which attract pollinators such as insects or nectar-feeding birds. The petals are fused into the operculum, or cap (except in Angophora). While many gum blossoms are white, they come in a kaleidoscope of other colours, including sulphur, orange, vermilion, red, pink, lime and purple"
