Palm Valley is picturesque, it is grand, it is tough, it has a story, it has survived through the ages. It is ‘Australian” beauty, and it has to be painted!
I don’t paint just any scene. There is more to it than that. There needs to be an inspirational ingredient to painting. To have meaning, the attributes of Palm Valley need to be embraced, most of them, if not the lot. I think of it as needing to capture the quintessential essence of the place, making a memory a sense of the place rather than a picture.
