On Saturday afternoon Don and I took a little outing to the other art fair.
There wasn’t a whole lot which grabbed me, but I immediately gravitated toward the works of Jennifer Lia. Don says blue paintings are like a magnet to me and that I immediately head straight for anything predominantly blue. I was completely unaware of this, but he’s right – which is kind of crazy because I wouldn’t have said I even like blue.
We grabbed a postcard which current sits nicely on the shelf above the television alongside a postcard of Robert Malherbe’s south coast 2 (which I was slightly disappointed to miss out on it at Sydney Contemporary this year). Yep, more blue.
I was really very taken with Lia’s Bronte 2 which was available as a print (already sold). Unfortunately the original wasn’t being shown, so I couldn’t see it in person, but I’m quite tempted by it – love that curve and the whole summerishness of it.
Well tempted apart from that whole wanting to be a bit more frugal thing.
Gorgeous afternoon so we walked home from Redfern via Newtown where we stopped off for Thai for lunch and I indulged in a pretty excellent watermelon drink.
Interestingly, my right ankle was in agony by the time we got home (it’s a bit of a hike). I’d always attributed that ankle pain and swelling to running – but I haven’t run for a while now and have had the pain a couple of times after long walks I’m not-great footwear** so maybe I need to revisit that whole thing.
** flats with some arch support both times, I don’t do heels, but still not proper supportive walking shoes, designed for (well) walking.
