AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

This week, we celebrate the birthday of French Post-Impressionist painter Paul Cezanne, who was born on January 19, 1839.

Serious country
Stormy waves
Consider clown time

My daughter was scared to death of clowns when she was little, but did the most beautiful batik of a clown. She has so much artistic creativity, even with clowns.

I love the beach scenes and long for those scenes in my own lil' world. But I'm afraid Spring is still far away for us. Last year it was still cold in May...a very long winter to be sure

Will be glued to the TV tomorrow watching the inaguration. A new change for the world, not just the USA, we all need the hope and a helping hand...goodness and kindness through out the globe.

Have a wonderful week!

Amen to what Sweet Repose said!

This looks like a fun meme. Oh, no, not another one! ;-)

I love that you chose Paul Cezanne. One of my favorites.
