Tropical Gothic

I'm getting excited about the Finders Keepers Markets on the 31st of October and the 1st of November. I don't do many markets so the once a year outing is a fun way to meet other artists and customers.

I have a soft spot for the Old Museum in Brisbane. It brings back memories of long trips to "the city" from my childhood. After hours and hours of driving we'd go through the boring outer suburbs and when we saw Tyranosaurus Rex striding through the palm trees outside the tropical Gothic grandeur of the Old Museum we'd know we were nearly there. Rex is gone now and the building is dwarfed by development but the slightly sagging elegance of this beautiful building still remains.
