The inspiration for Beyond blue came from daily observations of the sunrises and sunsets filtering through the treetops outside my studio. The kaleidoscopic colours changing and reflecting on the shimmering leaves and branches was a reminder of how life, as well as the seasons, in nature evolve. Through the dark times we can look ‘beyond blue’ and hope for better times ahead. On the land we endure the disasters of drought and flooding rains and progress to the occasional triumph and magic season.
