A semi-abstract contemporary painting inspired by an aerial view of an inland river bed in desert country.
Evocation of the desert environment: burning sand, Spinifex bushes, rocky outcrops,
sparse drought-resistant vegetation and hidden creatures in crevices.

The last rain is hardly remembered, the parched earth is thirsty for the next downpour,
the dry riverbed is hungry for the next life-giving flood.
