Many country towns in Australia have a 'big thing' as their tourist attraction - big pineapple, big banana, big merino, big lobster, big Ned Kelly etc etc. In recent times towns have opted for silo art and water tower art - much better I think.
We went to Gulargambone especially to see this beautiful water tower painting by Jenny McCracken.
I was also thrilled to be passing through Dunedoo on our trip because I had heard there was a silo art project currently being painted by equine artist Peter Mortimore. It is of champion mare Winx and jockey Hugh Bowman who grew up in Dunedoo.
And to top it off I saw this lovely mural in Dubbo which I instantly recognised as being by Adnate.
P.S. We are back home now and I am exhausted from doing rose pruning all day. I will have to leave visiting your blogs until tomorrow or the next day.
