Is there a painting or sculpture you’re drawn to? What does it say to you? Describe the experience. (Or, if art doesn’t speak to you, tell us why.)
Photographers, artists, poets: show us ART.
Subiaco, Western Australia – Late 90’s had a great little indoor market, Can’t even recall the name, (the pavilion sounds familiar though)… Around the back of the market was a Picture Framer / Art seller… There where two prints that always caught my eye. (see above photos). Everytime without fail when i went there, and walked past them, i would say to my friend, one day i will buy those. I don’t know what it was i was just really drawn to the style and innocence of the prints.
Fast forward to 2004, by this time i was married, had a child and we just sold the first house we built, Jack promised me that i could buy something that i had wanted for a long time, and i knew without a doubt that these pictures where what i wanted. “The Ladies”as i call them where brought and in most houses that we have lived in since, they have taken up residence in our bedroom, keeping a watch over me, and looking out for me like guardian angels.
The one on the wall above is currently in the lounge room of the current house we are in. Unfortunately they where in the Garage after our move here, and the glass got broken, the other one is in the laundry at the moment, as about a month ago we put them both on the lounge room wall and it was too heavy and actually fell on my head a few hours after being put up. i think this is actually the first time “they” have been separated.
I did have the painters name, but can’t for the life of me figure it out, even after looking again on the prints.
