Artwork Description

This painting of red river gums was inspired by my love of our eucalyptus trees.

Eucalyptus, or gum trees are the quintessential Australian tree, and one of my favourite subjects to paint. Mainly because of their beautiful, ever changing bark. Also the twisted shapes to their trunk and limbs, often due to harsh or varying climatic conditions.
Eucalyptus camaldulensis: after Camalduli in Italy where a tree was grown in a private estate garden in the early 19th. century. The seed used to grow this tree could only have come from south-eastern Australia, though the exact collection location is unknown.
The hollows created by the falling of the limbs of the red river gums are ideal homes to a host of wildlife, making them a magical ecosystem along the inland waterways of the Australian bush.
Medicinal use of Red River Gum
Eucalyptus leaves are a traditional Aboriginal herbal remedy. The essential oil found in the leaves is a powerful antiseptic and is used all over the world for relieving coughs and colds, sore throats and other infections.
