Squall on Boronia Peak

Always a pleasure to hike up Boronia Peak. Even when the weather is excitable. This particular day was a mix of sun and rain, moving at speed from the west. Reminded me slightly of Scotland and for the first time I could nearly see why Major Mitchell named them after the Scottish hills they look nothing like.


The area’s aboriginal name is Gariwerd. The Jardwadjali and Djab Wurrung people who live here divide the year into six seasons, and I reckon we experienced four or five of them on this hike.

This painting is one from my upcoming show at Vox Populi Art Gallery in Ballarat.
