From the artist

In 2017 I made a trip to South Western Tasmania to walk to the top of Frenchman's Cap in the Franklin Gordon Wild Rivers National Park. Travelling with a group of friends, some of whom shared stories of their adventures rafting on the Franklin River in the late 1970's. And although the Franklin River was big and beautiful, and the views at the top of Frenchman's Cap were very vast and impressive. It was a small patch of dense forest along the trail, below Barron Pass, where the Vera Creek and others ran through the damp forest floor, that I chose to make this painting from.
