I had the pleasure some time back to spend a couple of hours Talking Painting with Jack Absalom in his gallery in Broken Hill. He was a lovely, gentle man and a wonderful artist who so generously gave time to anyone who wanted to talk about how to get that perfect image. Here he has captured the beautiful Olgas in the Northern Territory.
