When we lived in Woodenbong, a small village in northern New South Wales, we were high in the mountains of the Border Ranges. If you turned right as you drove out of Woodenbong, you headed into New South Wales through rainforest, and if you went straight ahead down a really windy road around Mt Lindesay with ancient rainforest either side, you ended up on the valley floor and in Queensland.
Along the verges of both roads and in our own garden, white flowers used to pop up which we called “spider lilies” as we had no idea what they were. They were unusual, very hardy and this digital art is based on a photo I took of a clump of these flowers in our garden.
I worked on the photo with PicMonkey, mainly playing around with the “water” gizmo, and decided that this image, reached very quickly, was quite okay without any more work. I called it “Emotions – the Spidery Web of our Inner Life” because to me emotions reside in every cell of our body, they are what cause us to be human – love, sadness, happiness, grief, hate, hope, compassion, tolerance, and so on.
