Three days in the life of an artist

Easter 2018 and I am on the New England. I’m here to create some artwork about one of the most famous shearing sheds in Australia. It’s the shed at “Deeargee” near Uralla. The work will be exhibited at NERAM at my solo exhibition “The Hundredth Shearing Shed” in February next year. There’s a lot to be done between now and then. The exhibition has been in the pipeline for a number of years now. Lots of conversations and proposals. I have one shot at a solo at NERAM, now that it’s such an important regional gallery, and one shot at this shearing shed.

A challenge worth working towards.

When I said that I was going to go Norfolk Island as a student, more than one person asked why. “But you already know how to paint” they said. “But you’re a professional artist” they said.

I anticipated learning about one new thing a day. And I noted those. But when I began the list for those 7 days on the island, it was closer to five things a day. And there’s probably more yet.
