Red Creek - PAINTING
Red Creek is a work simply named from the colour of the creek that stagnated around this Backhousia Myrtle. The Western Sydney Dry Rainforest is so named because its rain is very intermittent and the flow of this creek only occurs with heavy rain. So for much of its time it is dry with only a few small ponds maintaining water. A rust red sediment lines its waterways, most likely an algae that feeds on leaf litter.
