Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

Inspired by the smoke haze floating over the Gippsland countryside, for many days late April. The planned burning left a purple touch to everything. I was thinking of those poor koalas in the fog of choking smoke. The interesting hues influenced my decision to experiment with this haze of purple and to push my boundaries using bright non standard colour. I took a further risk and added touches of orange to the eyes and around the animal to echo the beautiful flaming autumnal leaves and of course those fires. I have a thing for koalas they have an innocent quality but behind the cute face they can be quite feisty when they need to be. This is a small piece produced more for my pleasure than for profit and the price reflects this. I hope it will make the view think about the plight of animal subjected to unpleasant smoke inhalation during the autumn burn offs.
