Scene looking inward from the edge of Toohey Forest, an island of bushland in the suburbs near Brisbane. The canopy is open, and the sunlight reflects brightly off the pale leaf litter and under-story plants.
Shown are local Eucalyptus and Acacia, along with some prickly pear cactus, an exotic with quite a history in Australia. Once forming vast and dense stands excluding all native and agricultural life, the prickly pear was eventually brought to stable numbers biologically, via the introduction of a species of Cactoblastis moth. Now these moths and cacti are simply another part of the continually changing ecosystem.
This painting wraps around the frame edges, as seen in the detail photos.
I use artists acrylics for their colour, lightfastness, versatility, durability and longevity. Canvas stretched on a solid pine frame, sealed with varnish and ready to hang.
