‘Forgiven’ Is an interpretation of a photo taken at a small mountain creek near Poatina, Tasmania, where Heather lived for 15 years.  Some say the water there is the purest in the world. A source of life, joy, refreshment and hope.
Water is the source of life all over the world and for the wonderful wilderness of Tasmania.   When Heather took this photo, she could not help think of our indigenous friends who many years before used these water holes to sustain their lives.  The title ‘forgiven’ was what came to mind as her feet touched the water one day,

the refreshing, cleansing, refining water. "Without this amazing life giving substance, we would not exist. I am so thankful and privileged to have lived in Tasmania and had access to some of the freshest water in the world!" Heather


This painting is now residing in Longford Tasmania. The owners connected with the imagery which reminded them of their own children puddling in the water, good memories for them. This painting features in our book 'Brush with the Creator'. The story and reflections have been significant for many.
