Visiting Pro Hart's Art Gallery - Part #1

Location: Broken Hill, N.S.W.

According to Broken Hill and the Outback brochure, Pro Hart 1928-2006, was a man of many talents.  As well as his famous ability as a painter, he designed and constructed a telescope and machine gun.  In 1968 Pro was an underground truck and locomotive driver before he took up painting full time.

I like them and assume the landscapes are of Australia. The dragonfly is great with lots of texture. Thanks for sharing. xo Jenny

Sounds like a man with an interesting life. I like his style in the other paintings more so than the dragonfly one.
