"A Lucky Day in the Life of a Forest", 1995

Late 1994, I was commissioned to do a major Pavement Art piece to mark the refurbishment of Surfer's Paradise Mall. It rained and it rained and it rained. After ten days of boredom, I taped a large piece of canvas to wall of my apartment and painted this. Several other international street performers where in town and it originally had a TV like frame drawn around it, complete with channel selector, volume control, etc.. It's development was our major entertainment during two more weeks of rain. When the weather cleared up I completed my commissions , made the front page of the paper and brought the canvas home. Early 1995 bushfires ravaged Sydney, I cut down and mounted the work and painted in the exhausted matchstick. March 1995 "A Lucky Day in the Life of a Forest" won the Grand Prize at the Hoechst (Aust.) Altona Art Competition.
