In recognition and support of those brave people of Queensland, Australia, who have lost loved ones, homes and possessions in this terrible flood.

All profit from the sale of any of my works this month will go directly to aid those affected by the flood.

My life is a dead tree;
Spring is a mockery to it;

But in the winter it shall bear the snows
And rear aloft its stark and hopeless branches
As bravely as another.

Thomas E. Moore (The Dead Tree)

*11 January 2011

“Eight people are dead and grave fears are held for more than 70 people still missing after yesterday’s unprecedented flash flooding in southern Queensland.

Young children are among those dead after a wall of water raged down the Great Dividing Range at Toowoomba, crashing through several smaller towns in the Lockyer Valley below.

Police say more deaths are expected but the numbers cannot be estimated.

It is unknown how many people remain stranded on their roofs as the torrent heads east, while residents in low-lying areas of the Brisbane Valley are being urged to leave as a severe storm looms over the region."*

I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t create, it’s as natural to me as breathing, especially now that we have the means to achieve great art with digital photography. It’s so exciting and I feel that my creativity has finally come to fruition with these fantastic digital tools.

  • Hi Lee, a little bit of Aussie landscape for you – most of the north-east is under water right now so I thought I’d put this up in recognition of the bravery of so many people who have lost their homes and possessions to the floods but keep going no matter what …

    Amazing how a dead tree can be more interesting than a live one if the right artist takes a crack at it. I love what you did here, and the poem fits so well with the image and edit. Instant fave.

  • Thanks so much Chris, for that wonderful comment and the fave :)x

    i have been watching the floods on the new here Chris so sad to see people lose there homes crazy weather you dont know what is coming next i hope you are safe were you are lol lee

  • Yes, we’re fine Lee, central highlands of Victoria, in the south, so quite elevated here … the floods are covering a vast area of Queensland which is the northern most state on the eastern side of Australia, it’s heading south though, so who knows where it will end. Parts of Western Australia are also under water … whole towns have been evacuated and families have lost everything … heartbreaking for so many
