An artist's work

On the other side Katoomba Street there is another mural that I admire. This one is a tribute to Blue Mountains artist Reinis Zuster with a representation of his painting “Mountain Bolders”. I love Zuster’s work for the way it interprets our beautiful environment.

If you are visiting the Blue Mountains, make sure you go to the Conservation Hut at Wentworth Falls. It is more than a nice place for a meal with a view, there are two large Zuster paintings for you to enjoy.

Words to walk with:
In an Artist's Studio by Christina Rossetti
"One face looks out from all his canvases,
One selfsame figure sits or walks or leans:
We found her hidden just behind those screens,
That mirror gave back all her loveliness.
A queen in opal or in ruby dress,
A nameless girl in freshest summer-green,
A saint, an angel --every canvas means
The same one meaning, neither more nor less.
He feeds upon her face by day and night,
And she with true kind eyes looks back on him,
Fair as the moon and joyful as the light:
Not wan with waiting, not with sorrow dim;
Not as she is, but was when hope shone bright;
Not as she is, but as she fills his dream."
