Kentya Creek, Flinders Ranges
Janet Pagan has always enjoyed the visual arts though only recently has she had the time to follow what has since become a passion. She started painting with acrylics, appreciating their vibrancy and immediacy. Lately she has started on a fascinating journey in oil paint, focussing on the landscapes and people that capture her interest and imagination.
This trickle of water was the only water supply for a large farming establishment in the Flinders Ranges. The farmhouse and outbuildings are now ruins as the lack of water proved too much for such endeavours to succeed in this arid landscape. The small stream painted here continues to sustain the trees and shrubs. While the region is mostly harsh and dry, it is also very beautiful, with the colours and stark shapes capturing many artists.
This oil painting is 40x50x3cm and weighs approximately 650gms. It is on a canvas stretch ready to hang. This painting can be collected in the Hobsons Bay area.
