Bush Trail Ride by adgray

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…



OK I am First & Foremost a Writer but I do have some skills in other genres of art. (Gives me a great appreciation of those works that excel way beyond my humble offerings!)

This is one of my paintings I made a few years ago now
(about 20 lol)
It reminds me of my favourite ride told in
A yarn for you – Karimba’s Ride-

In my youth I had ridden trail horses so many times up a bush track like this (up & down Mt Olinda from Kilsyth, all around Beechworth & over the Bunyip Ridge), that when I stopped riding [& became “a responsible wife & mother” for everyone else] I missed it so much I had to paint it. This is a mixture of acrylic poster paints & left over house paint on a fine piece of old Masonite [you know the kind from the bottom of an old drawer …. cos that’s where I got it from lol]

So come for a ride with me?

horse, riding, bush, trail

adgray is a writer and a poet
- telling stories all her life,
- writing them down once she learnt how
“Scribbling! Always scribling!”
… and no there was nothing to be done about it!
Her poetry came later when the gift found her to be a ZETE segue (Zographonic Extemporanious Treatise Ekphrasis)
At times she can go into a trance-like state as poetry flows through her to the page and screen
Thank you for coming to read my words! ~ adgray~

    Thats awesome, so soft and pretty, maybe one day you will find your track get on a horse again and continue the journey xx

  • Thank you
    I haven’t many of these pictures of mine and the other ones are completely different! lol I have one here and my mother has “Stored” the others for me lol …. I may never see them again lol
    But my big sister was a far better artist than I and so I never explored my possibilities … individuality was promoted in our family in stead of sharing interests.
    Yep I’ll get back on a horse soon … I have another surgery this year to undergo and recover from and then just watch me – don’t blink!! lol
    Thanks for looking at my art!

    Lovely and soft artistry

  • Funny how it looks so soft on this but in effect it’s quite rugged and rough! lol The paint is all lumpy in long textured lines symbolic of the bush depths and the bark on the scratchy trees & the twigs & sticks that stick out and cane your legs! lol
    Thanx for looking at my actual painted visual art! :O)

    Lovely work , you should do more .

  • Thank you But I don’t think I’d create half as good again … I tend to go through phases and “Conquer” something then move on. These two were done half my life ago! and I have done so many other things since But you never know!
    Thank you again for looking at my art!

    love this, this is a delicate piece,dawnx

  • Thanks Dawn it looks it doesn’t it but it’s so rough to feel … after I painted the back ground with the acrylics, I literally put the house paint on with a spatula … well an old bone handle knife anyway! lol
    But I’m so glad you like it!
