The Air That I Breathe

The air at the coast is...well, different. Yes? Some of my earliest memories are the scents of the coast as I first get out of the car after a long drive...on winding roads, through hilly valleys, steep hills, and past lush pastures. It used to take us 5 hours to get there!
Now that I live in Canberra it only takes just over an hour. Even still, those first moments as you step out of the car and inhale the fresh salty seaside air are moments I cherish. It brings back waves of carefree, happy, childhood memories that long lay dormant in my mind. These days I savour that coastal air when I'm there, and long for it when I'm not...it brings restoration, healing, strength, renewal, focus and hope. Inhale. Exhale. The air that I breathe.
NB: While every effort is made to capture the true colours and details of my artwork, every screen is different and art viewed online does not do my work justice. Slight differences may be evident between a screen image and the true tone of my work which is more vivid and beautiful in reality. Scale may also be slightly off due to the insitu art app used, so please ensure you measure your space. Thank you!
