Dalhousie Homestead Ruins by Kay Cunningham

Currently unavailable for purchase

Acrylic painting on canvas.

Dalhousie Homestead is in the Simpson desert a few kilometres from the famed Dalhousie thermal Springs. It is an oasis in its own right and although deserted and in ruins I paid it a few visits to sketch, photograph and wander around.
This painting was done in my studio and is for sale.

Life is too short not to paint or be creative!
Life is so enhanced with a brush in my hand.

Life is, I hope, a joy for you.

    A wonderful shot, Kay, beautiful colour. We were there in 2001 after having crossed the Simpson Desert.

  • It was a great place to visit and it would be a pity to miss the ruins on a Simpson trip. I did a whole series of paintings based on the Simpson trip. Hope to do it again soon but on another track.

    Wonderful artwork as usual Kay, I cant even draw a straight line..lol

  • Thanks Di – the fave was great too! If you look closely you will see the walls of the main building are not straight – but deliberately so!!! P’raps thats why I like painting old buildings! Coincidently I rehung this on my wall about 1/2 hour ago.
