It was pretty dark when I visited my friend Rosa, this week, so could only take some pretty bad shots of her very endearing oil paintings. All framed by her late husband. Her house is covered in them, all painted at a tiny desk in her spare room. Its a great journey through her childhood in Italy, family life and quite a few renditions of Christ in various scenarios. They come in visions.
Been hanging for another Saskia Leek show back in Oz. On now at Darren Knight Gallery
I always enjoy getting up close to Nadine Christensen works, and theres plenty to explore at her new Station Gallery show opening today.

Really would love to paint more singers. Had this big blonde mop of hair I was keen to paint and at the time Carly Simon was playing on the radio. Theres a bit of Carly, coming through in this work. I used part of the line 'the way that you hold me whenever you hold me... theres some kind of magic inside you...' for the title.

An inspiration for 'I can see you, but I can't hear you, turn your camera on' was the beautiful portraits of Jim Nutt. I thought of the title when I was thinking about the difficulty sometimes with communicating on phone or Skype. Their eyes don't meet yours and it cuts out sometimes during crucial moments.

The inspiration for 'Reclining nude with samsung galaxy' was close to home

Wheres Molly? Can you spot my little porcelain bust in Katherine Hattams recent work.

This guy would sit next to an ATM and watch the traffic all day, near our apartment in Bangkok.  He looked much older than in my painting and seemed so quiet as the traffic buzzed pass.

long weekend!
Ricer Rinso's new show opens at Jan Murphy this week

I love some of these big wave paintings of Raymond Pettibond. He keeps it simple and direct. Was lucky to see a big wall full of his work at the Hamburger in Berlin. Like a little retreat amongst the really contemporary art with really contemporary ideas. Sometimes art is the best escape from art.
