Landmarks in the area around the PA hospital, such as the bus station and railway system, native animals, the hospital itself, and a nearby childcare centre, all make their way into the artwork. Painted in a childlike way to appeal to the kids attending the nearby childcare centre, the artwork features a cartoon train on a raised railway, each carriage carrying a native Australian animal, and the ‘purple rain’ of Jacaranda flowers signalling exam time for the university students who learn at the nearby teaching hospital. Matisse has also included some of her favourite animals that she’s spotted while out mountain biking to create this delightful and imaginative artwork.
