Now, after the cyclone and rain...that ever present moist, damp, tropical air envelops us!
Well, that's Queensland in February I guess.
Once the rains ceased, we couldn't wait to get out and about and enjoy that sunshine.
But first, a cool, slow stroll through the gallery...and then lolling in the sculpture garden. Nice!
I felt tangled up in green.
Nope, with all this beauty around you, you wouldn't be dead for quids?
|Oasis verde!!!! I'm heading there. Around the corner and down the stairs…let's go!|
|Love these gorgeous muted shades.|
|Into the cool of the gallery....and past the ikebana....always lovely!|
|Madonna Staunton's exhibition.....I just let those muted colours wash over me. A glorious lesson in colour composition and more. My next post!!|
|The Bather....striking a pose. |
Whenever I go into this sculpture garden at the Queensland Art Gallery, I'm reminded of the time I sat in Rodin's garden in Paris, and sketched his magnificent sculptures and those roses. Had the best time!
Looking at the Rodin sculptures…their angles, curves, spaces, light and shadows….my wonderful art teacher guided and advised. Thank you Pauline. Next time you happen to be in Paris, and if you have time, do a drawing class….you'll love it! http://www.paulinefraisse.com/
Note to self: Bring pencils and paper next time and draw in here. You don't have to wait to go to Paris Robyn!
|A lovely corner spot....to loll about and dream in.|
|Watching the floating clouds above.|
|A little bit of foot dangling….and wave making. Good one!|
|Shadows on concrete walls are also beautiful artworks don't you think? Natural artworks that move!|
|The Visitation....she looks a little worried I think.|
|Grab a chair, a cool drink….and just be.|
|Splish, swish, splash, splosh....background music on the terrace..|
|Yes, the birds are nice...but not when they steal your pistachio biscotti.|
And I wasn't going to argue with a beak like that!
|Looking, looking, looking.....|
|Going my way?|
As I said, you wouldn't be dead for quids would you?
