Lone Pine Family Tree

Today is Anzac Day and four years ago on this day I brought my first daughter home from the hospital, my beautiful little newborn. My thoughts about Anzac Day are now also mixed together with this memory.

Lone Pine Family Tree

This is a painting I did a few years ago. I would probably do it a bit differently now but the idea behind it is still powerful for me (read more about this work here).

I think a lot about legacy, memory, meaning and history. Both in personal terms and on a grander scale. Even more so now, as a mother.

I like that this is a day of reflecting and remembrance.

I think history is important.
