Picket Hill

I just love the beach landscape where we live. The banksias that seem to be happiest in sand, the pink Pig Face daisy that runs across the sand brightening up the dunes and best of all the beach grasses that shimmer silver grey. It amazes me that so many different plant varieties brave the harsh conditions of our coast.

The hill in the background is Picket Hill. It has special spiritual significance for the Gumbaynggir people.

This acrylic painting is about a meter square and painted from a combination of photos taken over time.
