Three Panel piece which captures the idea of Past, Present and Future.

The series combines the beauty of natures own palette, based on the ochre and deep reds (and purples) of the Australian Outback, and the awkward adaptation of the family to their surrounds.
:: The child doesn't care for the surface she scribes on.
:: The girl attempts to find her balance on a rock
:: The mother is removed from with the beauty which surrounds her.

It is a metaphoric comment on society's distancing from the world around us, as we get older.

This series now resides in the Lai residence in South Australia
