Wallaby Grazing is a wildlife of Australia artwork by Ryn Shell painted in acrylic paint on canvas. My grateful thanks to photographer Philip Woodhouse for allowing me to use one of his nature photographs as the reference for this artwork.
Ryn Shell watercolour painting of the Buninyong dairy above, the haze over the Gong from the Enfield Forrest blaze, below.
I took an art class to paint at The Gong, the upper part of the historic Botanical Gardens in Buninyong. While we painted the sky turned an incredible colour to match the autumn foliage.
No, it wasn't a sunset. Us country folk knew we were looking at a bushfire haze and some left to get back to their rural properties.
What I painted was the start of a massive Enfield Forrest blaze.
Enfield State parks are a haven for wildlife. They were once goldfields and the home of miners tent camps. Diggers poured into the region from around the world during Victoria’s gold rush. In late winter through spring, park visitors will be rewarded with a wildflower display.
I acknowledge the Aboriginal Traditional Owners of Victoria - including its parks and reserves. Through their cultural traditions, Aboriginal people maintain their connection to their ancestral lands and waters.

In open mystery novel, the reader knows who the murderer is, from the beginning; the mystery is why, and how, they did it, and if they will be caught.
In The Stolen Years series of novels, the reader has a view of who commits many of the crimes. There is plenty of suspense while no one else suspects who the murderer is.
