I have discovered that I like drawing kangaroos who are on holidays.
It may have something to do with my penchant for drawing silly things, but also due to the many amusements I have had the pleasure to indulged in, whilst being an Aussie overseas.
For instance, at the end of last year, my beloved and I had a wonderful break together , yet again, “across the ditch” last year in Queenstown , New Zealand. (AKA “Ibiza for Australians” .)
I LOVE New Zealand and its people.
In fact , I do feel I could belong to the New Zealand Tourist Board, such is my love of the land.
And so (as my beloved and I had done on several previous trips ) we ate of the delights of fresh Kiwi produce, imbibed in the world renowned New Zealand Pinot Noir , traipsed and sailed around the gorgeous Lake Wakatipu, climb the remarkable Remarkables (mountains) and just inhaled the fresh New Zealand air.
And, we rode “The Luge. ”
“The Luge” is a highlight of New Zealand attractions for my beloved and I.
And also obviously for the rest of the several thousand Australians who also seemed to be a The Luge that day…
Here is an excerpt from The Skyline Luge website and you will understand why:
Take the driving seat with the gravity-fuelled Skyline Luge, the global thrill ride for all ages
Take a thrilling ride enjoyed by all ages and abilities. Our purpose built Luge carts put you in complete control as you take on over 800 metres of banked corners, tunnels and dippers. Once you’ve conquered the course, hop on the chairlift and do it all again, and again, and again. Gentle and leisurely or steep and adventurous, you’ll be hooked. Once is never enough.”
Say no more…
And so, as Australians, or Kangaroos in Queenstown, I had to capture the moment in art..
PS – I have recently learnt that kangaroos can kill a dog.
