For anyone who has been following me for some time will know that Rick Amor is one of my favourite artists. I thought we could take a look at one of his paintings today. He is a Melbourne artist who has been painting for many years and his work is very collectable. His work is also admired by many who cannot afford his paintings, me included.

Well, I’m still here up in the Mallee, but not for long. I heading home tomorrow, sadly. I have run out of time here. I didn’t get nearly as many things photographed as I hoped, but that is how it happens. Though, I know I will be back.

I have been to many places and been in all sorts of directions. I don’t like the computer I have here so I’m looking forward to getting home to work on them on my big monitor. However, I did go somewhere rather special today and thought I would share some of the photos with you.

In a small town called Brim they have some grain silos, like most places around here, but they have done something special to them.

Artist Guido van Helten has painted on them and turned them into a work of art. There are 4 portraits on there and apparently they are all people from Brim. They are incredible to see. They were started in December last year and finished in January this year. They are beside the Henty Highway and lots of people stop to look at them.

I am going to put up a gallery with some of the photos I took. I took a couple from a distance and then some close ups of the details. It is quite amazing. I hope you like it too.
