Tom dropped me off downtown in the morning on his way to a meeting so I could get cultured at the Queensland Art Gallery!

I love this piece. Ah Xiam's "Human human - lotus, cloisonné figure 1 ".

The classical oil paintings were amusing.

This head just doesn't really belong... 

 Seriously what's with this man's head on this small woman's body?

A fabulous twist on a traditional style. Masami Teraoko's "Woman with Iris".  All of Masami's pieces displayed were rad.

The east coast of Canada looks cold. Isaac Walter Jenner's "Cape Chudleigh, Coast of Labrador".

I'm noticing I don't take very straight photos...  Sydney Long's "Spirit of the Plains".

Then I decided to take a stroll down to the CBD using the fun pedestrian bridge.

But I got distracted by South Bank. The lagoon was packed!

Such beautiful greenery

I also noticed this crazy black hotel downtown, what's up with that?
