I entered this piece, called "Barcelona", into the Border Art Prize at Tweed Regional Gallery this month and it won the Shirley Kennedy Award. Barcelona is a wooden assemblage - wall piece with acrylic paint and oil pastel. Shirley said she really liked the composition and colour choices. Great to win a prize!

I got this photo in Byron on Wednesday this week. I loved the contrast between the gentleman with his white collar buttoned up in the background and the young guy cruising past - it seemed to speak about the diversity of the Bay.
We are travelling to the Daintree north of Cairns tomorrow to help out planting trees on one of the Rainforest Rescue properties there.
Rainforest Rescue has bought a number of properties in the Daintree World Heritage Rainforest over the years, to protect the endangered Cassowary and preserve an ecosystem that has been at risk of over development.
You can read more about Rainforest Rescue and the amazing work they do, not only in the Daintree, but in Tasmania, Indonesia and Ecuador, on their website at http://www.rainforestrescue.org.au/
I'm still enjoying a bit of iphoneography, and after dropping the car at the local mechanics the other day I walked back over the Billinudgel overpass and got this shot. I love the repeating lines that become more emphasised in black and white: and the sun behind seems to add a bit of drama.
Also I'm working on a couple of sculptures to show at the latest Hammer and Hand exhibition opening June 20. Everyone is welcome and the opening night should be fun, with Kate Le Jam's brilliant Gypsy Moondogs playing a set or two. Hope to see you there.
