SOLD - Bazil's Reflection
Oil on Canvas / composite This is a story about a horse that captured my heart. A strong spirited creature with electrifying energy that reflected his environment. Bazil – a love that has been lost to the elements of time, but never forgotten. I can still feel the touch of soft velvety contours around his watchful knowing eyes. The familiar creases and crevasses that sculpted the details of a vibrant life, emerging deep from within. Adventurous, brave, ready to ignite into reckless exertion, but in a moments notice; tender, gentle and highly intuitive. In my eyes, Bazil had a soul that can only be equalled to a reflection of a spiritual centrepiece and significant landmark such as Tasmania’s Mt Roland. This looming landscape with timeless beauty, seeped in history, dominates its environment at 1233 metres above sea-level. It once supported the Six Rivers aboriginal community who called this land Ta Neem Der Ra (big grass plain). It was a life-giving wilderness that offered shelter, sustenance and spiritual nourishment to those who called it ‘home’. An impending rock face, ever changing to the facades of time. Life is a journey that leaves footprints in distinctive shapes which reflect the essence of a spirit once loved.

Oil on Canvas (framed) Painting size 60 x 90 cm. Cirrus is a descriptive word meaning "cloud forming wispy filamentous tufted streaks or 'mare's tails' at high altitude." I thought it a fitting name for this one.
Oil on Canvas/aluminium composite (framed) Painting size 62 x 85 cm. Inspired by a personal interaction I had with a most beautiful tiger at the Mogo Zoo (NSW). His name was Kinwah and he was privately cared for by the Zoo Manger, Clive. When Kinwah was born he was abandoned by his mother so had to be hand raised to survive. It took a long time for the Zoo to determine exactly why the mother abandoned him until they did a full body scan. They found he was missing a knee cap in his hind leg, which just shows how intuitive the animal kingdom is. His mother sensed this and instinctively knew he would not make it in the wild.
