John Williamson sang the song ‘I wish I could explain how it feels when I’m headin’ up to Queensland. It hits me when I see the sign for Byron Bay’.
Well, that’s EXACTLY how I feel every time I head to Byron Bay … Tropical Fever-er-er !
I headed up to Queensland in 1979 with my sister and we stopped over in Byron Bay. I have been coming here ever since … should have purchased a beach shack when Byron Bay was not so popular …. ho hum.
Anyhoo, we are here in the sub-tropics today, resting, exploring and of course, checking out the art scenes. I hope to be inspired by the time I return home and create some fantastic art this year … that is, if I can get myself out of the water to actually do some research.
I do know that Jungle and Tropical Fever will be featuring in my art and blog this year.
I will catch up with you sometime soon, when I am out of the surf 🙂
