Acrylic paints on a deep edge stretched canvas, edges white colour, varnished.


SPRING is a second painting out of four from the About A Land Far, Far Away one-off miniseries telling stories about an Australia's flora, a beauty of its native flowers and plants.

Hey, man! Hey, man! Tell me a tale
About A Land Far, Far Away.
A mystery land at the end of the Earth
That lies beneath the Southern Cross...

Terra Australis is the name
Of a great South Land far, far away.
One day, one day I will follow my dream
And sail the world to the Pacific Rim.

I will ask the stars to show me the way
To my dream land far, far away.
I will beg the sea to keep me alive
And not to be hungry for my humble life.

Hey, man! Hey, man! Write me a song,
That gives me the courage and makes me strong
To conquer the weather, currents and sea,
To become the man I wanted to be.

Hey, man! Hey, man! Sing me that song
About the country to which I wish to belong.
When I see cliffs, hear birds and the squeaky sand,
I will know I am lucky that I’ve found my land.

To be continued... See the Autumn
