Australian Outback Desert Boab Tree by June Orr – Signed on the front.

This artwork comes with an external frame

This original artwork is created by layer upon layer of bold colour blocks to create a bright, vibrant and unique artwork. Each original artwork takes 7 to 10 days to complete, layering colours one at a time and waiting for them to dry before moving on to the next colour and layer. When the bold colour blocks are completed and the artwork has cured, black keylines are applied to make the artwork “pop”. Finally, two layers of finishing medium are applied before the final layer of a combination of satin and gloss varnish.

With its unique appearance and restricted range, the boab is an icon of the Kimberly region in Western Australia. The bizarre-looking boab tree can live for hundreds of years. Its swollen trunk sprouts writhing and wasted branches that lack foliage for most of the year. The pulp and seeds are important foods for Aboriginal people. The adult tree roots can be made into string. In the semi-arid western and eastern Kimberly region the boabs preside in fields of termite mounds, many over a metre tall.
