Mum just found this in the games cupboard at Flinders.
It's my father's paint box, containing old oil paints and brushes.
When I took it outside to show him he casually mentioned that he had made it. I'm so impressed. It's fabulous.

I keep and cherish my father's oil painting boxes. He was an artist by trade, and his favourite medium was oil.
From time to time I like to open them, smell them and think of him. They are such an evocative item!

It all looks very beautiful... the wooden box and it's old oil colours still inside....

Such a beautiful box - perhaps someone else in your family will use it one day ...

I will be praying for your country as you prepare for this horrible cyclone. May mercy and protection be yours!
