The paintings From the Valley Floor mark a year in the Ellenborough Valley west of Port Macquarie.

The Valley is a back pocket with deep-green forested walls, a changeable river running through it and a seclusion that highlights every contrast: The soft and easy luminosity, the sharp shadows and thorns.

Silence and stillness, often partners to physical isolation, permit a concentration and focus on nature and the metaphors inherent in any land worth looking in to.
