Looking at other blogs that I follow, it seems to be de rigueur to put a photo of the artist’s palette onto the blog. So here is my palette. I hope you like it. Fortunately it is portable and here it is on the deck of our home. On the table is the wonky elephant light and a mosquito coil. The portfolio upon which I have been working is open beside the computer (Dell) and there’s a pile of memory sticks to carry copies and copies of copies of source photos. It also shows the remains of my breakfast and sundry objects left behind by the children. In the background you can see part of the mango orchard, and behind me the CD is playing. Way over in the distance a flock of sulphur crested cockatoos is flying across the eucalyptus forest. It is all quite touching but a good environment to get away from work and in which to think about the art.
