You are your Landscape Gallery: Paintings on Canvas *NEW* Description: In my mind, this place is the Atherton Tablelands; my birthplace and home for the first 19 years of my life. The rainforests, lakes, rivers, roads, paddocks and people filled me with a large gamut of experience from happy to sad and all the stages in-between. These experiences have made me who I am today, preparing me for the challenge I call life. This area of our country has great value and I don’t mean money. Places such as this add value to our lives. If we think about that and let it govern our actions everyone benefits. The place is also where my spiritual journey began; where I experienced the awe, and wonder of place and the conviction that there was something greater than humanity: a Divine essence so to speak. Through my conviction that there was a God, I was allowed to go to Sunday school. However, the church leaders had a hard time convincing me that their Jesus was the important one. To my young self, he was an imposter for the essence of a Divinity I had experienced in the place. A challenge they worked on for some time. As a result, and over the years, I realized just how stubborn I could be. I went about life, quietly doing what I perceived as ‘right’ regardless of the consequences. These were often unfavourable. Thus, as this painting evolved it brought lots of laughs and enjoyment as I faced the mirror that was my gamut of experiences in life.
