Paintings by Ye Naing, John O'Driscoll and Tina Cheung at Buzzzbar at 349 King St Newtown.
We open on Thursday 4 May from 6-9pm so come along and meet Ye and I, and hopefully Tina - who has a pyshical disability that makes it difficult for her to get around.
There will be a catalogue here, once I put it together
The show will hang for (at least) a few weeks
Aftermath, by Ye Naing

A painting which comes from a couple of drawings of Marguerite Montes and Peter Urquhart at the Record Crate with Justo
The pink is an improvement over the green I think, but there's still a way to go with this
There is paint on most of the canvas now - the colours will change a bit, I'm mucking about to see what I like
I'm feeling my way a bit further along with this, using leftover paint from other projects
The start of it all

Floyd's just lost a couple of toes. A complication of the warfarin he has to take.
He's a regular at rough edges but hasn't been around much for a while. He's been waiting forever for compensation for his original injury, and a place of of his own to live
There's still some empty space on the mural on the wall so I'll paint a portrait of Floyd there as he requested

Dunny signs to be precise - people are having a hard time finding the toilet at the Crate so I'm painting a few signs to help them find their way - a set of toilet hands
Earlier versions are below
Around the bend - this one will hang above the bar.
Toilet Come Hither
One side of the sign outside the door
The other side of the dunny door sign

I was about to say I'd finished this piece buut then realised I still have a few things to fix up, mostly the frames the train power wires hang from. I've been preparing some canvases to start a picture down below on Cathedral St
The city from where the Woolloomooloo viaduct goes underground on McElhone St

Martin in his loungeroom. He had one of his Sunday arvo parties but it rained so noone else showed up. We went down to the Frisco for a beer
Upstairs at the Frisco hotel.
I also did a portrait of Penelope which I'll add here later if she sends me a copy
A fragmentary drawing of the corner of King and Wilson Sts in Newtown from when I was drawing portraits last friday
