Rain at the Show

55x55cm acrylic on linen.

I work very near the showgrounds at Wayville in South Australia. The Friday to start the Royal Adelaide Show was a wet one, so I ventured out to the main gates with my camera and brollie. People were scurrying in and out of the gates with earnest looks on their faces. Still, the show must go on – and it did!

About Mike Barr

I paint what I love - sparsely populated beaches with big skies and wide shallows and rain-drenched city streets that sparkle with reflective light.
Of course, both these places are animated with human activity, such as beach walkers or those braving the elements of a rainy day,
and they add to the appeal of such scenes.

The sky usually plays a large part in my work.
From a very young age I have been fascinated with clouds and the moods of the sky and have always loveed a stormy day.
It is no surprise then that this is translated into my work.

My paintings aren't acquired because they match the curtains - they are windows in themslves.
They offer glimpses of where we have been or where we would like to be - places where the soul can linger for a while an rest.





I am a fellow of the Royal South Australian Society of Arts
