It was like she had always imagined. Finally she was here in a land full of creatures, dryness and nothing but raw beauty. There was nothing else to see but the vast harsh landscape that surrounded her. The beauty played tricks on her and then bored her. The repetitive nature hypnotised her. The hues and straight lines lay burnt in her memory. Eucalyptus bushes grew abundantly with their subtle grey green ash leaves and the humming lilac aura. The palette was euphoric and made her instantly smile.
This painting is inspired by a recent trip Collom took to Western Australia.
