After an intensive week long workshop at a sheep station near Quilpie, I made a series of works and this painting was a culmination of the visual splendour of the outback and the changing seasons. We arrived at the station a week after solid rains and every living thing came to life. The Beautiful white flowering Sandalwood is native to semiarid areas of inland Australia. Its valuable oil is used as an aromatic, a medicine and a food source. It looks like an ordinary shrub amongst the harsh outback, but when tiny white bunches of cascading flowers bloom after the rains, it attracts huge numbers of bees with its aromatic perfume and delicate petals. The flowering Sandalwood is the inspiration for this work because of the contrasting textures and palate of the orange earth and distant blue ranges.
