Artwork description:

The river flows past sandstone ledges.
Early morning mist weaves upstream between dark, tree covered islands.
The sun touches them with gold. This is a place for dreaming.

About the sandstone:

In my past, I lived in Sydney, Australia.
On weekends I spent hours drawing
the rock formations along the Hawkesbury River.

I was lost in the river spirit, with its cliffs, caves and huge flat ledges.
Images etched by ancient indigenous inhabitants survived.

On one such occasion, I collected pieces of coloured stone in yellow, purple, white and red tones. These I ground to powder and stored for future use.

In the year 2013, I became inspired to use the coloured sandstone in this series of paintings.

Materials used:

Mixed media. Acrylic paints and graffito lines made with palette knife. Textured finish is ground sandstone sprinkled onto polymer glue. Securely sealed with matt varnish. Surface: canvas sheet. No borders. Picture fills the sheet.
