Karijini, with love

Karijini landscape by Mary Aris

They come for the wildlife, the wildflowers and the remoteness. But mostly they come for the deep gorges – those ancient wrinkles across the face of the Pilbara’s Karijini National Park.

Everyone has a camera. Some bring paint brushes. But to paint or snap you have to visit.

Or you follow Mary into painting classes.

Mary had wanted to visit with her husband. For him, a return to a  place that had so captivated him. For Mary, a first-time experience. Sadly, they never got to make this planned trip together.

Mary says Karijini was Paul’s inspiration. Her painting in acrylics, from a friend’s photograph, is her tribute to him.
