This was inpired by 2 things. 1: Bunjil the whom indigenous Victorians believe was the creator, who ended up as a star in the night sky, even they believe the creator of the world was mortal but became immortalised. 2: Xavier Rudd - Spirit Bird. A powerful song and I believe these lyrics can be heartfelt. "But your dreaming and your warrior spirit lives on
And it is so so so strong
In the earth, in the trees, in the rocks
In the water, in your blood and in the air we breathe
Soldier on, soldier on my good countrymen.
The theme of my painting reflects on my idea of how one's old age or "twilight years" should feel. In nature, twilight is a time of peace and calm, which is exactly how those in palliative care should feel. The beach represents enjoyment and relaxation - two notions that are essential for our wellbeing as people in general - and is therefore just as important for those in care.
MOTHER'S LOVE AND NATURE'S WARMTH
There's no love as pure as mother's love in the entire universe.Every one deserves that pure love who is born on this earth.My view of Palliative care is the person should be loved and cared as the mother would love and care for her child right from the day she has conceived and the way she loved her baby when still in the womb,after giving birth and all the way through the child grows up.The person who is seeking the care needs to feel the PEACE and warmth as one can feel in the beautiful nature.
This photograph shows an artwork that I created for my best friend. He suffers from diabetes and pyoderma which has caused him to lose one of his legs. Greg being in and out of hospital for the rest of his life is the norm. He is always so positive and his strength is unbelievable. Palliative care is Greg’s life. Expressing his individuality through art has given us something that’s ours to look forward to. In between all the necessary palliative care we look forward to the next adjustment. It’s the most important thing - looking forward.
See me through my eyes

So often we look into someone's eyes and we see more than what is on the outside, moreover what is happening to them. Their spirit is seen in their eyes and they now look at the world differently.
