The concept for this work came from the coal fire that burnt during the summer in Gippsland, Australia. It was my way of expressing the warmth given out from community at what was a very difficult time.

of the scale of this art piece, prior to hanging
I painted this work outside, soon after the coal face burning disaster, it is painted on a very large canvas with Liquitex acrylic paints. It was very liberating to be painting outside and embracing the smoke free fresh again, which I hope I expressed in the softness and strength of this work.
A canvas print is now available to purchase from several of my outlet stores, the art print can also be purchased on other products.
