Cape Raoul - limited edition

from 36.00

On the Southernmost tip of Tasman Peninsular you will find the Cape looking right towards Antarctica. Cape Raoul is one of the most beautiful places in the world and important to me because its where my Grandma was raised on a small subsistence farm. Hunting, trapping and growing potatoes was how people got by in those days. She used to tell me about five kids clasped together on a pony with a lunch pail meandering down the dirt road to a one room school house. The walk to Cape Raoul and back takes only a day and leads you through dense rainforest to dramatic cliffs that fall away into the great Southern Ocean. We all have journeys to take and mountains to climb, and its extra nice when we can do it together. In this painting Arlo steps over old story books embedded in the heath dissolving in the rain, which is symbolic; illustrating how it is by holding onto stories too tightly that we get stuck, and life becomes heavy. Alex sits with a day pack drinking fresh water inviting Arlo to let go and to forgive because it is through the miracle of forgiveness that we set down our load and the light begins to flow again.

This is a limited edition print made onto rich heavy and textured cotton rag paper (limited to 100)

Large measures 13" x 19" (A3Plus) and Small measures 8.27" x 11.29" (A4). Each print is made from a high resolution image of the original painting and the image is as large as will fit comfortably with a border for framing.

We provide free postage within Australia and New Zealand. We always endeavour to use 100% post consumer waste recycled paper and cardboard in our packaging.
