A story of things.

The story of this still life belongs to the ceramic doll. It was made by my daughter when she was relishing pottery class as a child  between  the ages of 8-10. I love that there is a rawness to the shaping of the face and no painstaking tedium has gone into it. A freedom reigns as such. Behind the scene is a recent painting of mine where I was exploring paint application. And of course my love of house as subject. The vase on the right is a recent purchase from my regular ventures to Cardiff op shops. This Copperart was a real find.

Introducing my first still life. I published this last week without its story so here it is. The cat in the foreground was purchased from a little cluttered (but clean) antique shop near The Dandenongs in Melbourne. Many thanks go to Catriona who took us for a lovely drive around the outskirts of Melbourne where I was able to visit Heide the home of John and Sunday Reed. This cat appealed to me perhaps for its cheap and cheerful look. A pet without the hard work. It's standing on a mat bought at a shop in the Dandenong commercial village. The ceramic cupcake was made by my daughter in pottery class. And last but certainly not least is the art work at the back which comes from a local Newcastle artist named David Rose. Ignore the caption because it is not Sydney as it says. It's a little boucher shop in France.
