Circus will do his time in the Window of Opportunity
LOCAL artist Hillary Austin is all smiles as she becomes the 10th creative worker to exhibit in the Window of Opportunity mini-gallery at Shop 12 in Lismore's Star Court Arcade.
The subject of the painting Hillary has chosen to spotlight in her Essence of Dog project is local canine star Circus the Singing Dog, who frequently upstages local musician Jimmy Willing and his band The Real Gone Hickups.
"It can be very rewarding to see the reactions of the owners of dogs and cats I paint," the artist said.
"Many people smile, others respond with gasps if I've been particularly successful at capturing the essence of their four-legged friend - and occasionally, some even cry."
