The Low Burn

Description : This is a different version of another painting of mine called 'The Cool Fire'which has been sold. I read a very interesting article by Mr Glen Kelly, about the Aboriginal community’s vast knowledge about using fire as one of the main tools in caring for Country. Mr Kelly is a member of the Nyungar Community, the traditional owners of south-west of Western Australia. In his article, ‘Karla Wongi Fire Talk’, a Nyungar perspective on forest burning’ Mr Kelly talks about ‘Cool Fires’, burns of lower intensity, the most common use of fire for land management. This method doesn’t damage upper layers of the forest and if performed correctly, provides rich food and diverse re-growth.
I wanted to pay tribute to Mr Kelly, his very interesting article, the Nyungar people and all our Aboriginal communities by painting this painting.

Welcome to viewing the world through the unique window of watercolour.  I'm driven by the diversity and challenges of nature and the subtlety and drama of watercolour - a wonderful combination!  

I create paintings that add joy to your life, or that you're excited to give to someone special.  I'm so lucky to be able to connect with you in this way.

I feel honoured that customers have asked me to capture their holidays, honeymoon, views, experiences, feelings, loved pets and many more subjects.  

I specialise in watercolour; I also work in charcoal and pastel and write poetry.  I started painting in England where I grew up and now live in Melbourne Australia; however my subject and client-base is international.  

To me, the subtlety and drama of watercolour, its beauty and depth captures the world we live in like no other medium.   

Thank you for taking the time to look. Have fun viewing and perhaps choosing your own special watercolour!

Best wishes
Carin
