   Walk tall as the trees
Live strong as the mountains
Be gentle as the spring rains
Keep the warmth of the summer sun..
 in your heart...
and the Great Spirit will always be with you.
(American Indian prayer)

In the Beginning, © N.B. 1995
How old is this magnificent rock standing in the center of the desert?
No one knows its secrets.
What could he tell about times past?
He will still stand and watch when we are gone...

Memories Of The West, © N.B. 1996


Just let nature take over and it will create
the most enchanting garden.
Inspired by the endless plains of Western Australian wildflowers.
To set up the real garden would most certainly have taken much less time, than trying to persuade “Leather” to become “Flowers”.

Can you see the young green tree,
He spreads his arms towards the sky,
and tells the world:
“Look, this is I!”

Red Road, © N.B. 1999
(A Tribute to Native Peoples)
Yesterday the last thing you saw was the setting sun and you have cried in your sleep for a road soaked in blood.
Dawn broke the dream with another red sky, but this time it was streaked with gold!
A new day is coming!

Silent Presence, © N.B. 1996
"I have lived a long time.
Many souls have come and gone.
But I knew that one day you would be here... seeking the wisdom of my silent presence".

Uluru, © N.B.1996
The wide Australian sky lends a majestic aura to
the awesome sight of the world’s largest monolith.
Orange Napa was used as one of the numerous colors that make up Uluru,
with masses of blue suede for the soft blue sky.

Ozone, © N.B. 1995
Breathe in the fresh, clean mountain air as you look at “Ozone”.
Feel the crisp winter morning .....
hear the clear water flowing from the source ..... see the white snow on the mountain tops .....

The Source, © N.B. 1996
Hidden somewhere is the source of life...
Several months elapsed endeavoring to perfect the flow of the waterfall...
 To give it a voice...
so that the observer could see and perhaps listen to the cool, clear water rushing through the lush, dense foliage.
