Portrait of Paul by Robert Knapman



Tread lightly
Frogs croak code past this edge here
Welcome, respect, thanks…

Mt Warning trail. Mt Warning National Park. NSW…to the memory and spirit of forests and culture. Thanks Paul

Love is the secret sounds of rain-forests
Hitching courageously
On your shoulder
To avoid security

    what a beautiful portrait indeed, which is a testament to the artist for creating the beautiful color in the background and then submerging the human body into this landscape, (that has a mysical, woodland sprite type feeling to it) almost as though he is coming in from the mists

  • Thanks Red. It was the most astounding experience up there on the mountain yesterday…it bring tears to my eyes thinking about it. It’s all straight from camera with some colour / light tweaking. It was that mystical…and I think also a testament to the mountain for creating such enormous beauty and spirit.

    a beautiful part of the world – I love that walk

  • From start to finish there was rain, mist, sometimes wind, more rain, rain…we stripped right down to do it and it was just pure spirit :)
