Garden on the Hill, Maria Island
The White Tree, is a hand printed reduction linocut in oil inks, on Fabriano Artistico paper.
During a visit to the Maria Island National Park, off the East coast of Tasmania, I took a walk on the hillside above the historical township of Darlington. I explored the ruins of one of the old homesteads and the small circular garden out the front – long gone wild and now covered with flowering succulents. The beauty of this wild garden in this peaceful place, still thriving long after the people had gone and the house fallen apart, was the inspiration for this artwork.
