As part of the “Strength of Stories” Collection, “Billy Buttons” is an expression of strength, resilience and beauty. Surviving and thriving in the outback, wildflowers are the perfect subject to paint because they are an encouraging testimony to overcoming harsh conditions and emerging with strength and beauty.

However, the “Strength of Stories” Collection is not just about wildflowers. I decided to use text in the artworks, to remind us of the people who have also survived and thrived in the same landscape. In the text, the viewer catches glimpses of outback life. The text gives insight into the spirit of the people who, like the wildflowers, are strong, adaptable, insightful and have an inner beauty that inspires and cares for others.

“Billy Buttons” is a happy and bright display of colour and design. It features the Billy Button wildflower which I fondly refer to as little yellow balls of joy. Seeing fields of Billies in bloom is a delight to experience. Since they grow mainly in the grey soil of the district, I’ve featured them in a vase coloured with grey text and real soil. Some of the text appropriately refers to a lady named Joy who lived her whole life in the outback. A bright blue outback sky makes the perfect contrast against the yellow blooms. Using local red soils to add texture on the orange, rusty earth completes the artwork perfectly and provides a real and tactile connection to the subject matter.

My hope is that “Billy Buttons” will delight and intrigue you as you take time to hear and consider its story of strength, resilience and beauty.
