"Waiting for the Weekend"
The other day when Adam stopped by to deliver new works -I was pretty much taken aback to see a little move away from his contemporary style. Adam is really enjoying his painting and mentioned he was quite keen to see the boat harbours around Manly - for inspiration perhaps? I was happy to show Adam around our beautiful part of our bayside suburb. Its difficult to actually get close to the boat moorings, so we did a little drive around the different yacht clubs to show Adam some picturesque sights.
In the first image - Adam's beautiful, fresh take on a Jacaranda tree - First Bloom - the purple flowers are literally bursting out all over the trees now and its a beautiful sight, especially as you come into our main street, Cambridge Parade (where our gallery is situated).
Waiting for the Weekend - the boats are lined up and ready to go, waiting for their captain to arrive and take them out on the bay! There are hundreds and hundreds of boats in the harbour, and its a special sight to see them leaving the harbour on a bright, warm and sunny day
Third image is Spring Waters - on the Brisbane River. Most people would not identify with having boats in a Brisbane painting, but on the Brisbane River - just near our Botanical Gardens is a small mooring area where the boats are constantly bopping away.
