Such Beautiful Lush Greens in this Stunning Painting by
Louise Numina Napananka titled “Medicine Leaves”
The Western desert has an extreme dry climate. The summer is hot with temperatures often exceeding forty degrees Celsius. In winter the nights are freezing cold from June to August. During the droughts, vegetation is sparse and only spinifex and mulga shrubs subsist though they appear withered and lifeless.
After the infrequent rain the desert landscape is transformed. The dried out spinifex flower resembles a field of wheat and the mulga shrub bears green dense foliage and masses of bright yellow flowers. Growing amongst these plants is an abundance of wildflowers that turns the deep red coloured desert floor into a utopian garden.
The Bush Medicine Plant is an Australian native that grows wild in Central Australia. Women collect leaves from these plants, which are boiled to extract resin. Kangaroo fat is mixed into the resin, creating a paste that can be stored for a long time in bush conditions. This medicine is used to heal cuts, wounds, bites and rashes. It is also used to treat the flu, headache, backache, upset stomach, chest pains or as an insect repellent. As the leaves and petals dry out they fall off and are blown around by the wind. This is represented in the painting and gives it the movement.

Absolutely mesmerised by our adult art buy. I fell in love when I came across @dustytreasureshomedecor on Instagram and wasn’t able to shake the desire to have one of her amazing pieces on our wall. Hundreds of hand cut painted feathers overlaid onto one another to create this amazing piece that was coloured specifically for our living room. We can not thank you enough! It makes our place feel like home! #art #uniqueart #handcut #custommade #personaldesign #wallart #featherart #sydneyartist
Guess who's got another stop motion in the works! That's right, I am back in the lab with @brightmatterphotography cooking up some more stop motion magic. Here's a satisfying sanding clip cut with some pretty funny pre-planning staged discussion between Matt and I. Enjoy. | #timelapse #collab #krampus #stopmotion
