Artist's description: Affirmation See through the light, sun shines in us.
This painting is painted after my visiting of Royal Botanic Garden in Cranbourne recently, as Banksia has a special place in my heart. A brave, evergreen native tree with the humbled strength.
All banksias produce copious nectar and are ideal for attracting wildlife into gardens. Seeds are also eaten by cockatoos, particularly the Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo.
Banksia also symbolizes rebirth and new beginnings.
