A few bits and pieces from the finishing and additions on the Garden of Rock and Roll Delights from the last few days.

I'll have to check where this is derived from, it was on the cover of a Penguin paperback Grace brought in yesterday, saying, "that looks a bit like you"

Brougham St cliff

I started another cliff view getting ready for my painting for Weave - which is going to be a bit subterranean, like Woolloomooloo

Under the Viaduct, continued

Almost finished


Woolloomooloo Viaduct from Cathedral St.

I got a request today from Steve, a local, to stick a punching bag in way in the background from the beam by the wall where he'd he hung and used one for a bit, and I'll do that. A lot of homeless people have stayed under this  overpass

You can see earlier versions of this  here and all my Woolloomooloo paintings here

All in the Name of Liberty: The hairy word man

All in the Name of Liberty: The hairy word man is a reaction to the colours Van Gaugh thru on me when I visited NGV and an attempt to explore nature's geometrical structures

Weave today

A crane towering over the skeleton of the Crest hotel in Kings Cross seen from the window at Weave on McElhone St . Another little painting I've started as I get ready for the larger painting I'm doing. 

Hopefully I can get the canvas together over the next week and get started

Another McElhone St view, a bit more finished than the other one
