Art for art's sake

During our stay at Ammamead (from previous post) we did lots of day trips to some nearby towns and found a couple of great art galleries -  Barebones at Bangalow and Art Piece and Mullum. Mark has this thing about cattle (frustrated farmer or something), and we spotted a couple of paintings of dairy cows by a well-known local artist John Giese.

He couldn't decide which he liked better, so he ended up grabbing both (as you do!)

I, on the other hand, fell in love with this piece by Ivonne Mace. It's a large painting and quite striking - love the hues. I'd have to say that green is my favourite colour.

OK - so we splurged, but we decided that they would be early XMAS presents to each other. I'm sure they are going to look fabulous in our new house!
