WILD AND FREE
“Shaped by the Landscape”
Inspired by the novel ‘Where The Crawdads Sing’ – a question was raised in my mind.
Do we shape the landscape or does the landscape shape those who dwell in it?
The setting for this novel – that inspired this painting is undisturbed, wild and abundant with life.
The main character (what a woman!) is in many ways one with the landscape – it has helped her feel safe. Her love of this landscape is her saviour and her solace.
This painting captures the depth of this landscape and the layered beauty of it.
