I travelled to Litchfield afew times and if I lived in the area of Darwin I would travel there often. I love Litchfield, there is is much to see and is an easy day trip from Darwin.
One of my favourite places was Wangi Falls. Here I felt peace and richness with the land and it's ancient culture and ancestors. There is a small water hole in the cliffs face where I sat and relaxed. Even though there were many tourists swimming, they didn't disturb the silence I felt here.
In this painting I wanted to make it obvious that it is a picture of a waterfall, yet through the shapes in the cliff face ones imagination is inspired to see whatever you wish. Which brings the piece to life.


Private collection, Ireland
