Douglas Harrip is my name -
Painting pictures is my game.
Adelaide, South Australia is where I live
With my wife and two beaut kids.
A river runs past my door-
A good Aussie place thats for sure.
The paints I use are acrylics and oils,
My canvas is linen, which will never spoil
Red ochre, brown, burnt sienna and blues -
These are some of the colours I use.
There are frogs, lizards, emus, galahs,
Possums and goannas come out with the stars.
I sometimes go walk about over the ridge
And see snakes taking naps under the bridge.
I paint landscapes, seascapes with indigenous themes -
Aboriginals waking up from their dreams.
If there's any picture you'd like me to paint
Get on the net, I just can't wait.
Here's hoping this little ode
Will bring some orders from your abode.
AUSTRALIA is a world full of wonder
So "Good day Mate" from Doug Down Under.....
