The Short-lived Footsteps of My Baby Brother’s Life


My mob is Barkindji. I have chosen to paint river animals associated with our totem. The big turtle represents me and the little turtle represents my little brother who sadly passed away after nine short months. So, as you can see, there are nine footsteps for each month he was with us. The colours I’ve chosen represent various milestones in both our lives.
I hope you enjoy my story.

What is artwork stretching?
Your stretched and ready to hang painting will come complete with D-rings, hanging wire, and a small artwork label affixed to the back.

Why can’t I select unstretched canvas?
Some of our paintings are painted close to the edge of the canvas, and don’t have a border wide enough for standard stretching. These artworks will be ‘strip-lined’ with a quality cotton edging. As this is a boutique process, these paintings must be stretched by The Torch and are not available to be shipped as unstretched artworks.

Some paintings may also be unavailable unstretched because they have already been stretched for use in exhibitions.

How much will the artist receive?
100% of the artwork price, set before the stretching and delivery costs are added, is paid directly to the artist.
