One Summer Day

I painted this work (mixed media on paper) on Sunday 8 September 2019, in response to the news that Binna Burra Lodge, the heritage-listed wooden lodge building that had stood since the 1930s, was devastated by bushfire.

Founded in 1933 by conservationists Romeo Lahey and Arthur Groom as a place for people to stay and enjoy the beauty of the Lamington National Park, the lodge had panoramic views of the surrounding rainforest. The area is part of the World Heritage-listed Central Eastern Rainforest Reserves of Australia.
