Inspiration :: Aboriginal Art

15 February 2010

Good morning! How was your weekend? We had some pretty incredible thunderstorms here. I adore summer storms with those massive drops of rain that come after a stinking hot day. The smell of the rain on the hot ground holds such strong childhood memories for me. I love it.

I have a pretty busy couple of weeks coming up, so I'm just about to write 4 or 5 posts and schedule them for throughout the week. So please forgive me if I talk dribble and make lots of mistakes - It's after 3.30am and I'm feeling a bit delirious to say the least. I've just finished working and Roxy will be awake in 3 hours so I'm debating if it's even worth going to bed at this stage. May as well do some blogging I say!

To start the week I want to share these truly beautiful and inspiring paintings by indigenous Australian artists.

All images are from Aboriginal Art Galleries. They have galleries in a number of locations around Sydney. I must visit them soon - I can only imagine how incredible these works are in person. What do you think? Are you a fan too?
