Lily and our (small) multicultural world.

These Aussie landscapes are by Lilly Oen and on display, in the Tap Gallery, corner Palmer and Burton Street, Darlinghurst.

I am about to take down my exhibition, in the Tap Gallery, after an interesting week of exhibiting there, to celebrate my birthday.

At one stage, Lilly came into the office, where I was just checking something on their computer and asked if I was Dutch.
She’d noticed the Dutch touch to my 62 paintings.
Turns out she came from Rotterdam. Her mother is Dutch.
I read elsewhere, on the www, that Lily was born in Indonesia and has Chinese heritage, as well.

Day before yesterday. Lilly and I were walking through the gallery, singing the typical Dutch (sentimental) songs, that Dutch people call: smartlappen.
We both obviously knew a lot of them.
Yesterday, my last full day, before my paintings come down, today, I had a last good look at Lilly’s work.
She told me that Beatrix, the queen of the Netherlands, has one of her paintings!!
