One A Day 57:365 Composition with old tyre covered in lichen and 2 pink maple leaves.

57:365 Composition with old tyre covered in lichen and 2 pink maple leaves. I pass this bit of tyre nearly everyday I walk the dog. It covers a water mains tap. We all cover our water mains taps with a piece of old tyre up here because it freezes in winter and winter ain't too far away according to the colour of these maple leaves.

One A Day 56:365 Composition with a bunch of daisies, their shadows and a concrete drain cover.

56:365 Composition with a bunch of daisies, their shadows and a concrete drain cover. Are these flowers weeds? Not sure. They grow along side those little dandelions on the verges down the road. Lots and lots of them at the moment. They look like buttons - quite sweet really.

Maybe they are everlasting daisies. They are native I think.

One A Day 52:365 Composition with banksias and fence post.

52:365 Composition with banksias and fence post. I think these are Banksia spinulosa. They stick together like stickle bricks and are starting to bloom all the way down Evans Lookout Road. I left this little group wedged into the gaps in the top of a neighbours fence post when she wasn't home. My calling card.

And later a small man with a small digger came to the house to prepare the ground around my studio for our water tanks. I couldn’t help but decorate in the wake of ┬áhis tyre tracks, as that is now my habit.

One A Day 49 : 365 Composition with football cones and hoola hoop.

49 : 365 Composition with football cones and hoola hoop. Up very early this morning - with the noise of the first plane landing and before the sky was fully light. It rained over night in Coogee - oh what a relief. And I came across yesterday afternoons sports equipment lying around on the wet burnt grass.

Up very early this morning – with the noise of the first plane landing and before the sky was fully light. It rained overnight in Coogee – oh what a relief – February isn’t my favourite month in Sydney. Sticky and muggy and sluggish but this morning it felt cool and crisp.

And I came across yesterday afternoons sports equipment lying around on the wet burnt grass.

My second and final residency day at Gosford, taking a group of people out with me on my One A Day practise.

We did some excellent drawing on our return.
