Country Cottage in oils

This was one of the views of the Bed and Breakfast that I stayed at when on holiday in Tasmania in 2007. It was the old railway station (built in 1838) that was used to offload supplies before they were transported to the prison site at Port Arthur.  Hence the name of the B&B is Norfolk Bay Convict Station (http://www.convictstation.com).  The Port Arthur Historic site was only a 10 minute drive away.  (http://www.portarthur.org.au).  I love visiting Tasmania - there is so much to see and do at different times of the year. 

Country Cottage measures 6 x 6 inches and is painted on Ampersand Gessobord.
