another late night painting
it's 1.45am
the moon tonight was hidden from view
this left me wanting for her
the Zodiac sign Cancer is a water sign ruled by the moon
being Cancerian i very much feel her presence
and tonight sense her absence
therefore painting her in my sky instead

come take my hand
together we will walk out of the darkness

come take my hand
together we will walk out of the darkness
the eucalypts will again sprout from blackened trunks
there will be no forgetting
lives lost will never be lost through memories kept close
come take my hand
we will remember
and together we will help rustle the canopies of the mighty eucalypts once more.
In Remembrance

for those lives lost during the
Victorian Bushfires

In memory of the people who lost their lives and in support of those who have been directly effected by the devastating Victorian bushfires in Australia
Saturday 7 February, 2009.

Our prayers and thoughts are with you.

My first painting for 2009 has me dearly wishing it was not something inspired by such tragedy.
My mood and those of many others not conducive to painting whatsoever as each day over the last week this sad news has filled our homes that being the tragic loss of 209 beautiful souls at last count.

entire families

My paints were packed yesterday, not knowing what to paint,
so i painted my thoughts and prayers
reaching out to those who are in pain.

i am in pain
for the people - for the animals – for the land
i cry

we cry

the tears of a nation
falling on the blackened land
which now is

sacred ground.
