In the city

Today I finally got to one of Steve Harrison's exhibition openings - this current show at a different gallery to his usual one, Watters Gallery, was at the new Breathing Colours Gallery at Balmain.  It is a joint show with artist (painter) Roxanne Lillis.  I really like her paintings - very modern but with a lovely use of colour and texture.  The concept was for Roxanne to produce paintings of Steve's bowls and then both works to be displayed together.  It has worked really well.
the colour has been sapped from these bowls by my camera flash but it shows the paintings in the background

This one shows the colours of the pots better, apologies to the patrons for taking their backs

After browsing and catching up with friends my husband and I strolled down the street and found a nice coffee shop to have a coffee and cake before driving back across the city and home.
Balmain is an interesting inner city suburb with lots of old terrace houses.  To get there and back we crossed the second bridge of the Sydney skyline, the Anzac Bridge. Here is a snap taken through the windscreen..
