The painting captures the essence of one of the last great wildernesses the Kimberley region in the far NW of Western Australia. The wonderful waterfalls and gorges filled with wild rivers in the wet. The intense red colours and luxuriant vegetation. Beneath all this lurks a mystery of a land which has been inhabited and worshipped by Aboriginals for thousands of years. When I started painting this I work with such intensity that my eyes watered with tears.
