Acrylic on canvas.

When I painted this the worst bushfires in Australia’s modern history had just swept through my state of Victoria. I was thinking about hope and how important it is to believe something better is in the future.

    Fantastic work…….

  • I am SOO glad you like this. It is probably my most ambitious and ‘trying’ piece to date – but I learnt a lot in the process. It is funny that photography seems to be so much more appreciated by people in general when I think it is sooo much harder to convey what you want in a painting. Maybe photography is more accessible..
    Hence, glad this baby is liked!

    Great work, what a lovely thought.
    I love Indian philosophy and they believe in the elephant God called Ganesha, he helps over come obstacles, looks like he is in your artwork, helping others.

  • I never made the link to Ganesha actually but have loved Elephants ever since I went to Sri Lanka about 15 years ago so maybe it was subconscious…
