A dash of paint

We walked down a street in North Hobart, deep in conversation, when something caught our attention. We stopped, turned around, and just stared at the brick walls.  Wow!  What a little paint can do!


Our friend, Phil, pets the tromp l”oeil dog.

The door was painted to scale.

This was the painting that fooled us. It looked just like the real thing.

Even the post office was daring and looked terrific under the bright blue sky.


My favorite in Hobart: a painted wall and building to match behind.


We find ourselves more enthused about a place that looks great and shows off a bit in a stylish, colorful way.  Hobart impressed us as a town not afraid to show its stuff.  That’s just the kind of place we like to visit.
