Briana Jamieson, Walnut, 2022


Oil on Board, framed in dyed Tasmanian Oak

430 x 380 mm 


Calm days of warm autumn light. Eating feijoas outside in morning sun,
the garden hazy from sea air, smelling of salt and seaweed.

Lying on the lawn, arms spread wide, golden sky.

On the hill: a small walnut tree, its leaves caught golden in the last of the sun.

Sitting in the grass next to the walnut tree, eating a chocolate-coated caramel heart.
Melting in to the earth. Smell of ground, grass seed in low sunlight.
