ORIGINAL COPY POSTED ON INSTAGRAM DURING THE CHALLENGE
I wanted to paint this little scene for no other reason than walking on this farm road surrounded by nothing but the sounds of the bush brought me such overwhelming peace.
Quite a few of my friends have commented that they would like to commission a miniature but they don’t have any amazing photographs or larger than life moments.
To that I say – any photo of a moment in nature that gave you a feeling you want to hold on to, is a moment worth giving some tangibility to. Besides, what most people don’t realise when it comes to my miniatures, is that it’s often the story behind the photo I’ve been commissioned to paint, that really bring the tiny miniature to life.
It’s the wilderness within us all that inspires me so.
