God held a handful of ash,
blew into it saying, "Let it be the purest of creatures."
Out of His hand galloped the black horse.
ORIGINAL NOT AVAILABLE. My tribute to the animals lost in the Australian Bushfires in 2019-2020, in particular the Koalas and horses. Hundreds of Koalas were lost in the Lake Cathie area fires nearby and I was inspired to paint this piece one hot summer's day during the drought, heat and fires that seemed to go on for ever, with no rain in sight. The red Fire Moon in the evening was a sign of what was to follow, and the angry red Sun seemed to be a daily appearance with an ominous presence. Both were terrifying and beautiful.
ORIGINAL NOT AVAILABLE. During the Australian summer in 2019-2020 we were impacted by the Bushfires that reached our village and we had thick smoke, black ash, leaves and embers on our property for months as well as searing heat and drought. The angry red Sun and red Fire Moon inspired me to paint several pieces at this time. Fires surrounded our valley for a long, difficult Summer and we evacuated some of our equipment and animals to safety for a few weeks.
