hows this guy!

after a full day of sitting TCB gallery in the city, and marking down only four visitors(top quality visitors mind you). I walked out on to Bourke st to find this guy creating some genius on the concrete. You wont find this guy at Miami Basel or Gertrude Contemporary Art Space this evening. No sir, he's giving it to the peeps directly. And let me tell you the peeps were lapping it up. His only ask is small change, not climate change or a change in government but perhaps a little change in your heart, a loosening of one of your blocked chakra's to let the angel woman with wings on her head shower the earth in roses. If they pave paradise give this guy some chalk!

delightful Little Bay

Before Jakes opening in Sydney we went down to Little Bay for a dip. A peaceful spot, Jake tells me its the cove that Christo wrapped when he was wrapping everything
Jeebus was there, also golfers have successfully cleared a large patch of bush just above the beach for their pricey wrist actions, they were sinkin little white balls behind us as German Sheppard's fought an age old fight with golden retrievers in front of us.

Ginger Riley Munduwalawala

down stairs at the Art Gallery of New South Wales hangs this treat
Ginger Riley's Limmen Bight Country
this little image barely does the 2 and a half square metre painting justice
there is no medicine in the world that can cure the myriad of ailments caused by self induced pollution
anyway looks like a splendid show at Uplands Gallery this month

Amanda Marburg mosaic inpired

Some finger lickin' Kain Pickin and Rob McKenzie

Michelle Ussher real watery types

Saw this crazy pond in back in Nam a couple years ago

a poem about why we didn't come here

we didn't come here to save for nice jeans
we didn't come here to work full-time at officeworks
we didn't come here to admire fake boobs
we didn't come here to pay for parking
we didn't come here to avoid eye contact
we didn't come here to drink lots of beer
we didn't come here to send stupid text messages
or we might have I can't be certain

poem for the warmer months

it's hot
jeez... it's hot
it's quite hot out there
birds have their mouths open
are you hot?
I gotta go to work

Who would have thunk it!

Since retiring from geology a few years ago, dad has taken up stone sculpture to relinquish thirst for rocks. It's been an amazing process watching dad, who until recently showed no creative urges become quite a commited sculpture. He collects the rock from sights he knows around Victoria. His sculptures are truly lovely forms and shapes sometimes, sea creatures and vegetables. I'll post some more soon. He brushes off any of my encouragement to show his work, so the family home has become, the Iain McHaffie musuem. Post apocalyptic geoligists will have a field day when they discover our house after the next molten lava shower. a la 'A Day In Pompei' a la 'A Day In Parkdale'!
