‘If you saw what Warsaw’

’30 Days of Winter’, Day 14

‘If you saw what Warsaw’

The streets of Warsaw are hard, but there is a lot of beauty.

The exact same thing could be said for the people.

After Paris and Barcelona and Stockholm, it was Warsaw that got under my skin (in a good way) the most.

This is photo documentation of a single walk on a single day in Warsaw on March 24, 2012.

‘Bondi Inked’

’30 Days of Winter’, Day 13

‘Bondi Inked’

I watch the sand at Bondi every day, and the street, the people coming and going. Going about their lives in a suburb framed by the beach and the sea.

I have lived here all of my life, and I laugh when people denigrate it and am happy when they do. Just one less person to ignore on those crowded summer days and one less person around to enjoy these empty, stunning winter days.

The quickest possible line drawing of the view from my window, a presage of things to come. Possibly.

Things are getting weird out here on the edge of town.

‘Ghost woman in Ghost Frame’

’30 Days of Winter’, Day 11

‘Ghost woman in Ghost Frame’

An old frame, found on the street that I grew up on.

Painted over, a ghost of a memory of what was there before.

Who threw it out, where has she gone?

Without necessarily intending it to, this painting actually “moves” when you look at it. I don’t know how or why, but it just DOES!

‘Drought Series′

’30 Days of Winter’, Day 10

‘Drought Series′

Some years ago I painted this series of paintings. They were part of an intended wider work focussing on Australia’a arid landscape.

That wider work hasn’t come together cohesively yet, but collecting these paintings here and now for the ’30 Days of Winter’ project may spur me to develop that idea further. As it stands, here they are. Click on them to enlarge.
