Rites of Passage, from Bruny with love

Sailing from Bruny Island to Kettering on the Tasmanian mainland at sunset, the surrounding land and seascape invokes a feeling of timelessness, and I reflect on the many people who have, across the ages, navigated this passage. There are shimmering reflections of a fading sun on the water, a darkening mass of blues and purples, defining the approaching hills and mountains, and ribbons of smoke drifting lazily from small fires.This painting celebrates the enduring, elemental beauty that is Tasmania.
