'Smoke and Dust—December 2019' was painted from my photo taken during a drive north from Melbourne in December 2019. The air was full of smoke from the raging bushfires which devastated much of southern NSW and coastal Victoria. It's very atmospheric and I wanted to be a witness to that. Painted on canvas board I tried to convey the smokey atmosphere over the paddocks along the Hume highway.
