Original Acrylic Painting by Jacqueline Hill [OR150]
Original Acrylic painting by Jacqueline Hill.
Karumba in Far North Queensland is a favourite destination for the Grey Nomads of Australia – roaming retirees with caravans. I stayed there with my mother one year for a week or two. I was training for a marathon at the time so I used to go out running on the dusty road for two hours at a time. One morning when I got up to go running I found a green frog all dustied up in my running show. I gave him a rinse of in clean water and he stayed happily on the window glass for a few days.
This was painted on location – I got a sunburnt nose while I was painting it!
