Imagining Mt. Warrenheip. Acrylic paint on 40.7 x 40.7 cm stretched canvas.

On my way to Ballarat last week I saw from a distance in the train and then closer still when I was in the city of Ballarat, the beautiful, dark and mysterious extinct volcano called Mr. Warrenheip. I discovered that aboriginals referred to it as 'mountain with emu feathers', so although the mountain doesn't have a lake nearby I imagined it shaped like an emu egg, the silence of space and time, the place uninhabited. I intend to reimagine Mt. Buninyong as well - the  canvas I have is still empty, its probably something I will begin next week as I was busy yesterday and will be most of the weekend.
