We've made some progress in recent weeks, with Kate tackling the painting of the hallway wall which we had rendered...oh I don't know, maybe 12 - 18 months ago... but let's not rush these things.
|That yellow trim's days are numbered!!|
So long story short it means we can start getting some of our artwork hung that has been lazing around leaning against the wall. Given we've moved around quite a lot over the years before digging our heels in the sand in North Queensland, these items meant a lot to us as we moved from home to home, state to state, country to country. So it's been nice this weekend to finally get a few of them out on display again.

|Entry to the Master Bedroom|
|'Poppies' by Gary Myers|
|'Long Distance' by Anna Nielsen|
I bought this in Dublin, Ireland when Kate and I first met. It pretty accurately sums up our relationship both in the first six months, and then again when I was absent on military deployments overseas.

We saw this artist painting a scene of Lake Burley Griffin in Canberra at Floriade in 2009 and we bought it from Michael on the spot just as he finished it.
|What you see when you walk in the front door - it sums up living by the ocean...|
|I love this shot Kate took from the top of the Empire State Building - which we had printed on canvas - we loved our two years stateside and visiting the city that never sleeps.|
That's another couple of jobs ticked off 'the list' - can't wait to get the other side of the hallway painted now...
