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)

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.
