Art and French Cafe

Today I took myself on a little “artist date” to borrow a term from Julia Cameron’s The Artists Way. I visited the local regional gallery to see an exhibition of the works of the Australian contemporary artist Jeffrey Smart.

I have always loved his art and I appreciate the bold colours, the graphical compositions, the realism of the renderings, and the little quirky improbabilities he adds. His portraits of Margaret Olley at Le Louvre, Clive James, and Germaine Greer are fabulous. Just what does the huge graffiti “R” represent?

The strong coffee was perfect and the Blueberry Amandine lovely and I sat at an outside table enjoying the surroundings and pondering the art I had seen. Cafe Gourmand is trying hard to be “French” as are so many others these days.
