Artist's Inspiration

I love Katoomba... I love walking the street with it's jumble of old vs new. Small gaps offering unexpected glimpses and the wonder of cresting a hill with a view that makes you feel like you're on top of the world (or at least Australia! lol!).

I've always found a fascination with the Art Deco fascades of Katoomba Street, funny little additions and always the pigeons who hang out there!

Another aspect of painting street scenes are the stories I'm told. A lady who saw this painting told me the reason this part of the building looks odd is that it was an afterthought, filling in an alleyway that existed between the two larger buildings... and this is the window to what was her bedroom!
