The inspiration of this abstract landscape painting comes from our travels to the Australian desert. The gorgeous, warm reds and, ochres and against the great open sky is just breath taking. It is no wonder the large, stony outcrops are sacred to the Indigenous people. They are really a spectacular sight.


This piece was painted using texture paste as a base to create the luscious texture. I used acrylic paint to add the earthy colors.  The gallery wrapped canvas comes to hang.

Please note this painting is not framed, the frame in the photos in the description are just for illustrative purposes.



I understand buying art online can be somewhat daunting, since you cannot see it up close and personal. To help make things easier I post as many pictures as I can, and try to make a video of each painting. I also offer appointments for people who are able to come by here in my home. If that is not a possibility I do collectors the opportunity to send an artwork back, if it turns out it doesn't quite fit in their home. Please see the terms and conditions here:
