Cattle Track – Western Desert
Crisscrossing the Western Desert (Western Australia/NT borders) are cattle tracks carved by the many mobs of half wild cattle mustered by Aboriginal stockmen over many, many years. Stunted mulga dots the landscape and lines the cattle tracks. This is a hard but beautiful land only populated by the toughest of people. Floating clouds and distant blue hills suggest that rain may shortly fall on the plains transforming it into a lush living desert alive with grass, wildflowers and fauna (kangaroos, emus, dingoes, wombats, etc).
The painting is on linen stretched over a light timber frame. The frame can be removed and the painting safely rolled and placed securely in a cylinder for shipping. This then allows the painting to be reframed to suit the location where it is to be displayed.
