Broken Hill art



Broken Hill is known for its desert artists and there was none more colourful than Pro Hart. He made plenty of money from his art and was brash enough to paint his Rolls Royce.   I liked Pro but really I think this is just plain tacky.

  1. Broken Hill art is like the Galapagos Islands - it's evolved differently to the rest of the world and it's FAAAABULOUS!

    Happy travels!!

  3. I wonder if he had his type of art tattooed on his body? I was not keen on his art. Not very creative. Just a few motifs endlessly reassembled.

  4. JM, you really made me laugh.

    Julie, I quite like some of his art but agree there are motifs endlessly repeated. What I find interesting is the way there is a genre of art which seems to follow the same pattern.

  5. Hmmhmmm - there is a German proverb: There's no accounting for taste. (right out of the dictionary, ;-) - I only do hope it has the same meaning as the German proverb: never argue about taste)

Updated Royals

Royal Hotel Durban South Africa
I have updated the Royal Collection at last!  We now have 130 Royals including a recent contribution of 10 Royal Hotels from South Africa.  
I have seen 96 of the Royals myself, just a few more to go to reach 100.


Lawson to Clandulla - the end

We spent one night at Lawson, where the daffodils were beginning to bloom, to unpack the van then headed out to Clandulla where as expected the wattle welcomed us home.
That's the end of this trip, I hope to retire before we set off again.

Gundagai exploring

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
