Along with our classic use of dark humour, Australians are also prone to a little sarcasm which can often be missed by others not so well versed.
The key is to catch those subtle innuendos such as the way something is said (tone or pitch of voice) and the facial expression used to say it.
I have often been the butt of a dry joke in the hope that they can catch me out (and they often do!), but I like to consider it a compliment. People know I can take a joke.
Unfortunately, I am not nearly as quick at giving it back verbally and that's where my paintings serve a purpose. Hopefully you can enjoy the sarcasm within, as much as I enjoyed painting them :)
This latest creation is called 'Over Capitalising' - a great example of what I'm talking about.
