Fresh Embrace

Visit Lion Gate Lodge from Tuesday 27 September to see ‘Fresh Embrace’ Presented by Ruth Law

Fresh Embrace was inspired by a trip in February  to Flinders Island, in Bass Strait Tasmania.

It is a mountainous island, along with fabulous beaches graced with granite rocks, splashed wth orange lichen.

The highest point is Mount Strezlecki, at 750 metres. Three-quarters of the way up the overgrown path to the summit, I came upon two pademelons that hopped away smartly, and there I viewed  the mossy rocks and outstretched branches. When I later returned to my studio, I transformed it into a large oil painting on canvas. 

The  complementary colours of  green and purple lent themselves to this landscape.
Fresh Embrace also relates to the embrace of oil as medium.
