“The Lane”

I painted this mural down the lane near where I grew up as a teenager in Sydney beside the small community garden that has sprung up. Was so good to meet all the lovely people in the neighbourhood contributing to the garden, or simply going for a walk. The experience reminded me of the importance function such simple community-run spaces such as gardens and murals act as for a way for people to meet each other.

The mural is a kind of a flotsam and jetsam of my life… and from my memories playing in the rock pools as a kid down at the beach. And as a memorial to my brother Ned.
