Background by Artist - Vegas Fitzmaurice
“This painting represents the growth
from the time we arrive on the land
to the time we go back to it. As we
connect to the lands and country we
travel through life from birth to death.
This painting shows us the hope and the
journey we face. Ultimately we are all
one with the environment we share and
our connection is vital to that”
