It was a pleasure to recreate Edward Hoppers “Nighthawks” at a private residence in Barcaldine. The more I studied the painting the more I loved it and can see why Edward Hopper is regarded as one of Americas most influential fine artists.
After a busy couple of weeks in Longreach and Winton the good times continued in Barcy. I completed commissions at the Barcaldine Library and Shakesphere Hotel (known as “The Shakey”) Once again I made new friends and caught up with old ones. Thanks to Barcaldine Regional Council for the opportunity to paint the bricks that were handcrafted in a garage across the street in 1966 by Garden City enterprises.
