DONATED TO THE DENMARK VISITOR CENTRE by Michael Cartwright is the very large VIEW FROM REX'S ROCK print on vinyl. Before visiting the Visitor Centre to admire this 6 metre by 1.5 metre reproduction read the following story behind its existance.
IT WAS A HOT SUMMERS day when I climbed the south side of Mount Hallowell. It was a steep rocky incline, definitely not for the faint hearted but on arriving at the top, I was mesmerised by the panoramic view before my eyes. Conditions were perfect, so using my camera I quickly took a seris of sequence shots before the light changed and the magic of the moment was captured. These photos were used as my reference for the oil painting ''View from Rex's Rock'', so named as the rock in the foreground resembled the Dinosaur ''Tyrannosaurus Rex''. I was commissioned to paint this picture by locals, Bruce and Keir Mulder who directed me to the vantage point high up and to the rear of their property on Bimbimbi Way off Lights Road. I later discovered that accessibility was much easier from the east via the Bibbulmun Track.
Prints on canvas of Rex's Rock or any of Michael's paintings are available in various sizes at Gallery 2.
