This new painting was inspired by the view from our kitchen window in Calder near the town of Wynyard in NW Tasmania. We lived there from 2005 to 2010 and had 40 acres of magnificent land. The soil is deep red and contrasts with rolling hills of green grasslands and rows of crops. I was struck by this view because of the light which shines under the straight closely planted trees. The trees create sharp shadows which seem to flow up and follow the contours of the land.
