Wonder of the waratah PRINT
After the success of the 100-day project in 2021 I am offering a range of fine art prints at an introductory price.
Printed in Australia, on 300 gsm paper ready to frame.
This print will be hand signed and finished before sending.
Here is the story of this one.
Let’s go walking she said. They looked up from their screens and frowned. The interactions had been at work putting them to sleep. She was sick of the silence, only punctuated by the groans of frustration when a game went wrong, or a sibling came near or some equally disastrous happening broke through their solid, lumpish trances.
Come on, let’s go. Shoes on, hats, masks please. I’ve got the water.
Can we have snacks came a sleepy voice hopeful of biscuits. Shop ones, she was too busy working and trying to get them to join to bake any.
Sure, but please come on, the best of the day is passing. They slowly unravelled their limbs, long and thin from their nests of pillows and came with her to the door. She knew this was a miracle, that there would be a few forgotten items, but it was a start. Yes, let’s go. After a bit of jostling to see who would be the first out the door, up the driveway, who would hold the bag, they were off. The blue sky was electric, as it is in the early spring. The air clean and clear, it was hard to imagine they were home schooled, and pandemic bound. They set off into the bush happy to be moving and out of their domestic confines. Happy to see what was out there, to amuse them. What plants, creatures, noises, what stories they could make up to amuse themselves.
