35 cm x 27 cm, acrylic paints on cartridge paper.
Date produced: November 1980 (while living in Tasmania).
This was painted on-site, just out from Longford, during a six-month stay in Tasmania, in 1980. I often rode my bike along narrow deserted country roads, exploring the regions around the township. I enjoyed finding many fine country views, always with a backdrop of mountains. I remember that while I was painting this image, I was struck by a strong feeling of peace - being there, in such a quiet place, with just the fabulous sounds of small birds being busy all around in the countryside, and the clouds rolling past in total silence.
