The View Is Better From Up Here
Medium: acrylic on stretched canvas
The human footprint over time has left inanimate objects like this portion of an old train carriage abandoned and rusted by the elements.
From an artist's point of view the rusty effects have a totally different appeal, showing textures and colours that stimulate the eye. Combining these elements with nature's natural beauty with the Gouldian Finch, delivers insight of how nature takes advantage in terrain that can be unforgiving.
Many feel that these abandoned objects leave a stain on the landscape. Where the rusty metal will in time disappear, birds like the Gouldian Finch continually generate new life as they battle to coexist alongside humanity.
