From the artist

I am standing on a sand-spit on Black Swan Island looking towards the rain forest, so sense that you cannot walk through it. The tranquil water shows the deep tannin colour so typical of the South West. The blue patch of sky gives promise of the clouds lifting for a bright sunny summer day.
