Artwork Description

Oil Paint on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the back.

The landscape in the Central Goldfields is scattered with extinct volcanos, each one worn down by time and the elements. The local Dja Dja Wurrung people called this area the "smoking grounds" as the volcanic activity lingered until around ten thousand years ago. I ponder what it would have looked like before the white man arrived and imagine that life may have been quite idyllic at times. I think of the paintings of Eugene Von Guerard, the Swiss colonial artist who made such grand paintings of this area.
