Hello, I've been quiet for a while, but busy. The last few months have been full of mould making for the production of plaster casts (feet, hands, skulls, Popes, all-sorts. More in the next post). I have, however found some time for painting, and the Joynt Venture (see May blog) is progressing well. Still a way from being finished, but substantially in place. I changed one of the main figures after a visit to one of my favourite haunts, a bar called 'The Hideaway' in The Valley, Brisbane. A large girl in a halter-neck dress filled my vision, and seemed perfect for a part of the painting I had been struggling with, so in she went, and is as you see.
