john olsen exhibition the desert sea

So glad J and I were able to make it along to see John Olsen and his exhibition 'The Desert Sea' at the Metro Gallery in Armadale last Friday night. We were also lucky enough to talk to John briefly and get a signed copy of his book...actually he did a little self portrait in mine:) The exhibition has a mix of oils and watercolours mostly of Lake Eyre...the watercolours (above) were my particular favourite due in part to their large size. It was very inspiring to see such large watercolours so intuitively and sensitively handled. A glass of champagne + beautiful paintings + my husband all to myself = a lovely night.
