Had big plans for this but rested on what I know due to time constraints. Hopefully next week it can be a little more relaxed and I can break out some new stuff I have in mind. My wife thankfully came down, filled in a lot of the piece, did the 3D and the blue chunks in it. Otherwise this half light shot would have been a night shot. Nice work!

Fast, (not Sofles fast, but fast for an old bloke fast) piece today.
Back from San Francisco, but brought back some of the fog in my bg. Combined with a topical Victor Moscoso like color palette. I've been wanting to introduce more metallics than just silver, so I used some metallic blue and beige today. Great coverage and control and looking forward to further experiments, (check the crew piece, arrows, shines etc.)

New - Collages from Young and Free

I just found these images of my work from the show. Sorry, I lifted them from the gallery website.

Dabs Myla

A homeless guy lent me his stool to reach the top of my piece, while the rest of my new found homeless friends sung praises, shot up, got naked, drank malt liquor , and generally partied and enjoyed watching us paint the street they live on. Nice enough bunch with some sad history. 

Dabs and Myla installation in progress
Portable rubbish bin, if you were able to get in and drive it.

Fot the entrance to gallery, we tried for a Melbourne laneway feel, maybe it was a bad idea of mine and we just made a hard clean up afterward, sorry!

"W" Approx 2.5 x 2.5 metre layered timber letter installation to tie in with my paper cut works.

Aussies rules prelim finals....

Thanks to Sandra, Andrew, Justin and their crews for putting together a great show. 

I didn't take too many photos until the end. So it's not a comprehensive selection here. I pinched 2. Actually, I don't have proper straight on shots of my own gallery work.
