Continuing on our way …

Of course when you’re n the museum, the very next place that you (well, I) head is across the park to the Art Gallery.

Though in January this does mean through the Sydney Festival!

This year I had been told about an amazing ice cream stall that was in attendance, and I was determined to experience this wondrous treat.

As you can see, it was based upon a candy apple, and was a really amazing flavour! In the Art Gallery we found some respite from the heat.

I love this little guy so much. With his night wings, and shell hat on his head. I do kind of wish he wasn’t squashing that wee lizard under his hand though!

The gallery never fails to invigorate and inspire me. There is so much passion and emotion locked in the bronze of the statues,

… and staring out from the canvases. The brush strokes of the masters transporting you to anywhere and everywhere.

Leda has always been one of my favourite pieces, and I look for her ever time I go to the gallery. I was filled with anxiety and upset when I couldn’t find her in her usual spot this trip, until I found her somewhere else and realised that they had moved her!

There is always fun to be had during school holidays here too. I know that these activities were set up to draw children into the current exhibitions that are on.

And yet it didn’t stop us from joining in and having a go.! I must add here though that by the time we were having our fun here, most of the children had departed for the day! Art After Hours can be such a blessing!

I think there’s something in this piece for everyone. People should have and wear their own crowns.

With my cultural inclinations quite satiated (at least for the time being), we all tromped off to have gourmet pizza under the GPO at Martin Place. A fitting end to a wonderful day!
