We bought a painting several years ago by local artist Irena Dobrijevich-Hatfield of a painting she did of Northcott which is a public housing block very near where we lived. The story goes that Karina took a photo of the building one day when the sun was setting from the balcony. There was a spectacular sunset.
Irena saw this photo that we posted on social media and decided to paint it. We were thrilled by that and bought the painting. However when we moved to a another unit nearby we decided that we wanted to do something special with the painting. So we asked if the Department of Community and Justice Housing in Surry Hills next to Northcott wanted to exhibit it in their office. They did!
So now the beautiful work hangs in the Surry Hills office for all to see. We love making these connections and friendships locally and hope that the photo brings a smile to many people’s faces who walk into the building.
