A Pair of a Pair of Pears

A Pair of a Pair of Pears..............Sold
I have been pretty busy trying to get four paintings ready for the Queensland Show which is held in Brisbane and fondly known as the 'Ekka', (as in Exhibition).  Primarily, the Ekka was, and still is, an agricultural exhibition although it now incorporates a wide range of cultural displays as well.  I love spending a day there and pass much of the time roaming around the the arts and crafts pavilion.  The fruit preserves,  the baking section and the cake icing displays are spectacular and the knitting and needlework exquisite. Its so heartening that these skills continue.  I usually wind up the day with a hotdog on a stick, a strawberry ice cream and munch away while I watch the sheep dog trials in the central arena.

  1. I enjoyed looking at the many wall paintings that you have done. Not being very handy with a paintbrush, even though
    I know what I like in the way of art, I took the easier option to order this canvas print from the site .

    It’s an unusual work called Forest music 1, by Remedios Varo Uranga, a Spanish-Mexican woman artist.
