Last Tuesday we visited the town of Maryborough, about 40 klms from our cabin at Hervey Bay. What a delightful place! I would like to highlight two of the businesses we visited.


228 Adelaide Street

One of the best art shops I’ve visited during my travels. Syd Collins and his staff offer an impressive range of art materials and artworks for sale. Their framing is first-class. I was particularly taken with their website:    This is one of the best sites of its kind that I have ever seen. It’s highly detailed and easily navigated. Their online business is very popular, so much so that many of their clients are from overseas. Check them out, you won’t be disappointed!


264 Kent Street

This shop specialises in art books and coffee (a great combination), and it’s the best art book shop I have seen in Queensland! I was over-whelmed when I entered the store. It even has a coloured pencil section! I made a purchase and wished I had more time to spend there. What a wonderful shop!

If you can’t visit in person you can visit online:

I was not paid to mention these businesses. When I find something this good I like to tell others about it.

Wednesday: Details concerning my latest drawing.
