Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge – Work of Art

I am a Rosemaler? This is my Rosemaling, through a Photo editing Camera app. I am planning on adding a border with an appropriate proverb.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Abandoned

Abandoned: The very word conjures up feelings of desolation, despair and a sense of giving up. In rural Australia, there are many signs of abandonment, and this is but one.
