This piece of lino has been on unexpected journey with me because this is where I live, Lake Conjola, on the South Coast of NSW. In the background is Green Island, a well known surf break and somewhere I walk to when the lake is closed, and during certain times of the year, I pass by the shorebirds nestled into the sand dunes and foreshore on Conjola Beach.

I had finished my initial drawing of this on the 30 December 2019 but then the New Year's Eve fire hit. These fires devastated our village. As the smoke began to lift after the fire, I began carving my scene of Lake Conjola before the fires. Sadly, just a few weeks later our precious lake filled to the brim with rainwater then broke its banks and flooded our streets and homes.
This lino is really in memory of what was and a reminder of what will one day be again. The lake is now open to the ocean but in that captured moment of mine before the fires of New Year's Eve it was closed and the shorebirds were happily nesting.
