What a grand day!

Got this Brett Whiteley print from the Art Gallery for the man today.

I love his work.

The best thing about this one is that in the lower right hand corner there is a phrase that says...

"a pointless painting needs looking at for a long time in order to think about it"

Hey..Anchell....Brett truely did not conform.

He did go to art school but I am sure that his teachers would have critisized his work too -he started out being pretty straight but his best work was later on when he allowed himself to be free albiet full of alchohol and drugs.

I went to his studio in Sydney many years ago, with the man and Aleks when she was only about 3 or 4.

That was a grand experience.

I had a ball today.

The Art gallery is a place I need to experience more often.

They had a section with buddahs from India and Asia. One piece, was a buddah carved from wood -very old. If you looked at it for long enough, it looked like it was breathing.

I was blown away.

Then we went to bookshops and cakeshops and sushi train, where we saw Guy Sebastian.

It was a very good day.
