It is this.
(Dear ones – I am republishing this textures piece, as there were techhy glitches earlier. Apologies if you’re receiving it twice.)
Oh and this.
And here are another ooo
eight or nine Paradise textures.
I’m not kidding.
There is a place deep in the lakes-and-mountains heart of Aotearoa New Zealand called Paradise.
Some say it was named after the Paradise duck.
Lord of the Rings filming happened around this area of Paradise, Diamond Lake, Glenorchy, Lake Wakatipu, the Routeburn Track, the Dart Track.
What do I do when faced with splendour and majesty of the sublime?
Go ‘Wow’, then zero in on the
very small micro textures and shapes of mosses, lichens, tree roots and rocks.
May the textures of Paradise inspire your art-heart-mind the way they inspire me.
And please tell me: Do you too love a good mossy rock?
