I began Plains of the earth in mid 2015 and finished the series in late 2016. The art work comprises four large coloured pencil drawings done from near Mt Hay. The first panel is a diptych with a drawing of clouds above cliffs, and the valley floor. The last panel, viewing the work left to right, is a drawing of Mt Hay. All the drawings were done sitting on the edge of the escapment looking over the Grose River gorge.
