Art show at Parramatta.

 Every year the Parramatta Art Society has a art show, I'm a member but have never sent anything in.
Last year it was a bit poor but this year I was so impressed maybe had something to do with the cold winter we had this year, we are now allowed to take photos so I got snapping.
I hope you enjoy the show I know I did.


 The lion looks to me like he is lost in a dream, I liked him a lot.
 The blue one won second prize.
 My photo is a bit blurry the painting was a lot clearer.
 I have no idea what this is .


 This was a stunning picture but didn't win anything, but they were for sale and this one was just over $900 .

 I liked this one no frame so one was painted on just a bit different.
 Good sky.
 Lots of detail here.
 I pretty sure this was a painting of our local markets, I think I've seen the lady behind the counter on the bus.
 This was a stunning picture but behind glass so a bit of a problem with reflections.
 Birds were popular but no cats, guess they would chase the birds.

 I think I've seen him on the bus too.
 The winner but my flash has spoiled the picture sorry about that.





 This is the Parramatta park, as you can see lots of buildings going up .

 Nice cool spot on a hot day.
 These shops have all shut, a 90story building is going up here or so I've heard, all apartments and shops underneath.
Off home now see you later.

  1. Some absolute stunners in the art show. I do like the lion. And there were some water lilies which were reminiscent of Monet. Thank you.
    Love that tree in your final photo - and are they jacaranda on the side?

    1. The water lilies were very simular to Monet, to tell the truth they looked better to me but I've never seem the original, so it hard to tell.
      Wonder big trees around the park.

  3. So many beautiful paintings, especially liked the eagle and rosellas, we see a lot of them around here. Parramatta seems to be growing so fast,with all the new buildings going up, but I love the old church and the trees beside it. Cheers, Cheryl.

    1. Birds were very popular this year.
      Parramatta is considered a city now, it's still a odd place to me a bit rough around the edges.

    some absolute stunners! ....but Merle, your work would easily hold its own among the group; and I am sure they would sell!!! Parramatta was always a 'mobile' landscape... YAM xx

  12. 90 stories, all apartments with shops underneath, New York style.
    So many wonderful pieces in the Art Gallery, hard to pick a favourite, but I really like the street with the clocks on lamp posts one.

    1. All that is needed now is clearance from air traffic control, or that's what I have heard.
