acrylic on stretched canvasthis is a painting I did for my little sister.. of me and my 4 lovely sisters..they don’t really look like this..it’s just an Imaginary version of us all..I love it ..it’s slightly odd.. and strange..we’re all in an orchard and picking the fruits..It’s an “abundance” painting ..I guess.. and we are all really fruit fanatics in our family!!

there’s mum ..flying past I depicted her as a “shooting star”..she died a few years ago..and i miss her very much ! she was faster than anything I knew of here on earth ..she was just fantastic!! she must be a shooting star by now .

I love this painting ..I’m the one lying on the ground..exhausted..LOL

This painting has a very special feel Catherine. I am sure your mum is seeing it too and smiling…it is filled with love and fun. You have a very impressive portofolio, I am just going to have a look. Keep up the good work. Regards ~ Anni :)

    The Kransky Sisters are 3 badly dressed women who sing songs in a really, really off-beat but very humorous way. They sometimes appear on some Aussie comedy or variety shows …. think Paul McDermott or the ABC.

  • OK..hha!!

    Here’s a link to some of their songs from their web site. They are WEIRD … but wonderful. They remind me of some of the my sisters’ friends from their schooldays, haha! (Sorry, girls!)
