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)

Butterfly Art

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ My beautiful metal butterfly made some years ago by a Tasmanian artist (whose name escapes me).
He has since passed away, but he had a wonderful studio, open to the public in northern Tasmania, displaying his wonderful array of metal sculptures and objects.
I remember he always loved to dress in black with a heavy gold chain round his neck.

Thanks again--
