This is one of the last painting I will do while living in Broken Hill. It is a commissioned work and I am very pleased with it. Broken Hill – well I thought it was extremely ugly when we first arrived. But now I see the heritage, the blood sweat and tears of hard labour, the tough men and women of the outback and the outrageous courage of the people who live there now. The colours and textures are fascinating and the sky is magic. I have fallen in love this pile of rubble the locals affectionately call “The Line of Lode” and the Silver City – Broken Hill.
