The painting I’m using for the Food & Words postcard this year is by Geurie artist Matilda Julian. So far we’ve had lots of lovely comments.
I first saw Matilda’s work at Alby & Esthers in Mudgee and was instantly smitten. Then, a story on Matilda, her dog Banjo, Bliss cafe and life in Geurie, in Central Western NSW, near Dubbo, appeared in Country Style magazine with beautiful shots by Felix Forest.
It’s what I do each year, commission an artwork for the event. It feels good to support Australian illustrators and painters. This year, I wanted texture. And I got it.
