The exhibition is called Return to Hanging Rock and it will be open to the public at Mulberry Hill, a National Trust property and former residence of Joan Lindsay and her husband Darryl, and how appropriate is that!

One of my paintings will be in the exhibition titled Fact or Fiction? It's a trompe l'oeil work of the DVD, Picnic at Hanging Rock. The title refers to a genre where an illusionistic painting is mistaken for reality. But there is also a debate about whether the story is true or not, and Joan Lindsay would never say.
There is no historical evidence that the incident happened, but a great film has been made about it nevertheless.
Here is my painting, and it features Anne-Louise Lambert playing Miranda. The above photo is a still from the film with Anne-Loise Lambert
