Buckley's Falls before the drought

from w
This small painting I made today - A4 size - based on two photos I once used in a writing workshop on 'place'. Buckley's Falls is about 4 k from the centre of Geelong, a waterfall near an old paper mill. I reckoned the frog belonged there. Today though there is little water running because of the drought. The name Buckley comes from an escaped convict who lived with the local Aboriginal tribes for thirty years in the 19th century.

I like this picture! The colorful frog and the plainer waterfall in the background make an interesting contrast.

I really hope the drought ends sometime soon.
