Our MAY inspiration ...

will come to you from the 1948 painting called The Cricketer's by Sir George Russell Drysdale.

Additional Criteria - Outdoor Sports theme

A bit about Sir George Russell Drysdale ...

Sir George Russell Drysdale, better known as just Russell Drysdale (7 February 1912 – 29 June 1981) was a famous Australian artist. He won the prestigious Wynne Prize for Sofala in 1947 and represented Australia at the Venice Biennale in 1954. He was influenced by abstract and surrealist art and created a revolutionary and influential new vision of the Australian bush scene.

Inspiration from our wonderful Creative Team ...

oh and Mark doesn't refer to the boys name rather the process of catching a kicked ball in the air when playing Australian Rules Football !
