Over the past four years my dad has been collecting information about our family tree. You would be amazed what he has discovered! Only the other day he found out that we have five convicts in the family!

For a while now dad and I have been meaning to find the time to go on a road trip to the Western Plains near Orange. We wanted to trace our family history and learn about the farmer’s way of life.

First stop was Norman Lindsay’s house at Faulconbridge in the Blue Mountains. What a talented man he was! Dad is an artist himself and draws great inspiration from his work.

Norman Lindsay is one of Australia’s most influential artists. His paintings, sculptures, cartoons and models are simply gorgeous. He was known for his portraits of women, cat illustrations and his children’s book “The Magic Pudding”.

If you have seen the movie “Sirens” you will recognise the place as soon as you enter. Scattered throughout the beautiful gardens are Lindsay’s sculptures, some surrounded by fountains where ducks splash and enjoy the sunshine. His etching studio is near the gallery and down the hill is Lindsay’s café where we enjoy a bite to eat before continuing our journey.
