Richard Neville 1941 - 2016

My portrait of Richard, painted at Arcadia Road Glebe, in 2002.

I really enjoyed our sessions, his lively conversation.

He joked that my sitters should 'form a victims support group'.

I think that, eventually, he liked this portrait.

Vale Pat Geraghty 1928-2016

I mourn the passing of our good friend and neighbour Pat Geraghty.

Pat spent years at sea before joining the union movement, 

ending up as as head of the Australian Seamans Union.

He will be missed by the residents of Womerah Lane.


Exhibition King Street Gallery on William 16 Aug - 10 Sept


Getting ready for exhibition in August 

For nearly two years I have been accumulating pictures in my workroom. Three weeks ago I cleared it out, and selected my favourites to be photographed. Now I am starting to frame them - a fairly chaotic process for the rest of the house, as they spill out into the kitchen and lounge room.The exhibiton, called '600 days - Landscape & Still-life', opens on Aug 17 at King Street Gallery on William and runs until Sept 10. For the first time I will show still lifes of food as well as a few pairs of shoes.
