SAQA Oceana: Distance and Diversity

Standard
‘GILGAI’ Linden Lancaster 2020 40 x 60 cm

We are often prepared to travel a great distance to experience the beauty of our natural world. Last year, in the midst of the ‘Coronavirus lockdown’, my husband and I took a bushwalk in an area of the Barmah River Redgum forest down the end of our road. Our quest was to see what wildflowers may be present. Imagine our excitement to discover a ‘Gilgai’- formed from a depression in the soil which then collects and retains water from rainfall or flood. Such a surprise to see the diversity of shape and form of the plants in such a small area. They could not all be fitted into my representation!
