I have been using pieces from my pile as a starting point for some of my sculptures. Someone had given me these large off cuts of Murray Pine and I decided to make support structures from them. I then took a circle form that was also in the pile and started to think what I could do with it. I decided to make an abstract landscape form and paint parts of it in different colours. It all looked good but seemed to lack the human element and I added this girl to appreciate the landscape. Hence this composition , which is “Country girl”. A simple idea really, the circle being the oneness with the environment, the tree forms and the slope in the distance of a crop.
