Newsagency Gallery are putting on an exhibition of Iggy Pop to celebrate his 70th birthday. It's on the 18th of August so I've started this painting of the Passenger on a cloud taking a ride to see what's yours and mine

David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust and Iggy Pop

This drawing was preparation for the Iggy and Ziggy section of the Garden of Earthly Delights at the Record Crate in Glebe where they're riding a cloud. Bess O'Malley was telling me about a Cambodian Space Project rock opera about Iggy Pop and showed me a picture of him as Hanuman -Monkey.

Painting at Weave



2 views out the window at Weave in McElhone St, this one shows the skeleton of the Crest hotel, finished now

I worked out a shopping list today to get started on the large canvas I'm doing for Weave - we're getting them on Tuesday, it's exciting to be getting started




Houses and flats on McElhone and Brougham Sts, I'll keep fiddling around with this one. The versions from yesterday are below.

Earlier layers in this painting can be seen here and I'll add it to the page with all of my Woolloomooloo paintings soon(promise) . I've also started a page to put all my work at Weave but I won't start pasting links around until there's something there

 




Mural finished


We finally finished the mural in Glebe. Many thanks and a big round of applause go to Grace Woods for her flowers and sun which transform the setting. We haven't signed it yet or taken photos of last minute additions - I'll get some when I put a sealing coat on, meanwhile check out Julie O'Brien's photos below and on the Garden of Earthly Delights page.
