The Living Desert Broken Hill  by Virginia McGowan

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

A pastel painting of one on the sculptures in the sculpture park called the living desert out from Broken Hill. This was from a very quick drawing I did as the sun was setting on a red coloured sky reflecting onto the vast plains turning everything red, there was still a lot of red smoke around from the bush fires,As a beautiful balmy breeze gently drifted through the beautiful scene, a piper played some beautiful Scottish laments, then the plane appeared glinting silver with a sliver vapour trail behind.Magical.
Pastel on watercolour paper sealed with black blackboard paint

I had been very ill ,for years my mother had just died, just had a truck run into the back of the [ancient] 4×4 car we had just finished fixing up, so fixed up another [from the insurance ] 4×4 [old] one so we headed off slept in the back of the car…….. ..
