Further information

"South Morang. This was an area I was taken to as a child for a picnic. All the shapes and forms unfolded themselves and a man was actually working in his cabbage patch. I tried new colour harmonies and greater abstraction overall. Of the collection this print probably gave me the greatest pleasure to produce. It certainly was the most difficult to do".
