DESCRIPTION

Beauty Of Loneliness
"But the dweller in the wilderness acknowledges the subtle charm of this fantastic land of monstrosities. He becomes familiar with the beauty of loneliness."
MARCUS CLARKE 1846-1881, writer, poet
I wanted to capture the barrenness of loneliness, and it's alluring beauty.

“I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror –
The wide brown land for me!”
― Dorothea Mackellar
