INSPIRATION & SECRETS: Autumn is my most favourite time of year, where a subtle breeze makes colours swirl in the sky around me and tickle my heart with a divine joy. This painting was created for Winmalee High School Autumn Artfest, hence the name, it’s something I will continually support as it gives children the chance to follow their passion for creativity & see that it art can be a viable career or deeply rich hobby. There is lots of symbolismn here, like the tree representing autumn of course but also the students growth together and then the leaves leaving, show their natural journey into adulthood. The ‘Three Sister’ artists are capturing the leaves in paint, while the leaves are inspiring the painting, and these gold transparent leaves (like the logo) are displaying how rich the experience is for all participants. This painting covers creativity in various modes, the girls are painting, dancing, acting, singing while the musical notes create a ‘pattern’ into their outer skin, as they syncronise with their majestic Blue Mountains. Our Mountains are always Blue, only because there are so many artists that keep painting them, let’s keep it that way with Autumn Artfest.
