Strangely, wonderfully, serendipitously, after posting this a week ago.
I met him.
My daughter and I went to this gallery and there he was. Sitting amongst his beautiful work.
A little loopy, but still full of charm. Holding court with some lovely women.
We had him all to ourselves.
Before we left.
I found this drawing.
And we chatted a little about it.
This red dot says it belongs to me.
A drypoint mermaid. Soon in my shop.
Inspired by another australian favorite of mine.
These are images from a lovely animated film clip.
The Wealthiest Queen by australian duo Luluc.
I have really only just discovered them.
Worth watching and listening to.
"Still, as I lie here, on my back, in the sea, looking up, I'm as wealthy as a queen."
(Zoe Randell - Luluc)
