Jeffery Smart is a fantastic AUSTRALIAN Artist. His work often displays the things found in the everyday, roads, buildings, containers.
This is a collection of Aviation Gas Drums lined up and stacked up, along the side of a shed in Whitecliffs.
The time was just after sunrise, a bit cool but great light up at the top of the dug out hotel we were staying at. I found some great objects, old cars, broken glass, rocks and of course the sunrise over the landscape of outback Australia.

    Awesome Lesley, great shot. I love the picture by Jeffrey Smart in the Fairfax Studio (in the Victorian Art centre), with the missing container on the back of the train specifically placed behind the pole that masks it’s view from the landing.
    You caught these barrells very well with just the right lighting. Good job.

  • Thanks, one of my favoritesas well!
