Just a thought or two

If you were to leave a house on the west coast for 10 or so years, you would come back to discover it engulfed by the bush and probably hard to find, To us this would seem chaotic, but to the birds and lizards etc, this is back to a comfortable order .Having had this in mind, I have painted from the viewpoint of my banks peninsula environment and ecology ,thinking whimsically 'what would happen if one was to leave a window open here for a length of time?'We are surrounded by a great treasure, our unique wildlife and like our history it too is vulnerable as a china tea set in Canterbury .
