'The keys to happiness are in your hands'..



"Helping hands are better than praying lips" .. "Never look down on anybody unless you're helping them up"..
I could go on and on, there are so many great quotes about hands and who doesn't love a beautiful photographic image of hands, whether they be old and worldly-wise or young and chubby without a care. While we were on our travels yesterday taking in the 🌷festival and the 🌸festival I came across the evocative mural here in Memorial Park in Armadale. Painted by Melbourne based artist Matt Adnate last seen here (25 storey mural in the city) a few weeks ago. The park commemorates those who died in service or were killed in WW1, so a  fitting mural I think. It's going to be a flowery kind of week :) happy Monday, take care and stay safe..

  3. It is said that hands are one of the hardest things to draw or paint. I think Adnate has done a good job.

  12. This is pretty, but I LOVE LOVE yesterday's sculpture. I'd want a necklace with the shape as a pendant. Happy Monday!
