Pocket s of Wilderness, Banksias at Lake Currimundi
A soft painting depicting banksias located at Lake Currimundi on the Sunshine Coast.
Searching for pockets of wilderness is my adventure story. To find a space that is unkempt and chaotic, before it is spruced up, straightened out, trimmed and made tidy, it holds a certain romantic charm for me. I crave the freedom of its unfettered randomness. The plants jostle for space and they thrive. Eventually they will go to the inevitable urban sprawl, but for now you can still come across these places, they fill me with joy, a sense of peace and calm, they fill a spiritual need, a sanctuary for my mind to sigh and to feel all is well in the world.
The Banksias at Lake Currimundi are a soft and pretty green haven, full of peace and tranquility, very soothing for the soul.
