ROLY MAT

 

 

 

 

Pastel on canvas. 2009

This is about a time when I came home to find my dog very sick. It was like ‘lifting the mat’,

and discovering that this was a dying animal. This beautiful animal’s end was near.

 

 

 

BLEAK INTERVIEW

 

 

 

Pastel on canvas. 27th August, 2008

I was meant to be an artist drawing and painting as an observer, rather than

doing jobs that and artist may round-peg-square-hole-it in!

This is Parramatta, where I had the interview, oh so long ago now.

DEAD CATS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD ON A SUMMER’S DAY. 2007

 

 

 

 

Dead Cats In The Middle Of The Road On A Summer’s Day. Circa 2007

 

I had a cat called Tab. Not what you’d call an imaginative name, but he was the brother of my other cat named Blackie. When Blackie had her kittens, she would sometimes leave them alone

while she went outside. Tab would come in via the window, set himself to business,

and clean the baby kittens so that they could empty their bladders.

Tab was a one of a kind brother. One day, I found Tab in pieces over my driveway. I was devastated, and I called a friend to clean up the devastation. I was having troubles at the time with a local cat killer.

God rest Tab’s dear soul.
