Nipped down to the Illawarra to check out a Ute today. There is great beauty in this heavy industrial landscape. I’m definately coming back with a bit more time and my sketch book in my back pack.

This morning i did something I’ve wanted to do for years. I drove to Kurnell and sketched all the industry on the shore line. Never been there before and and it s really interesting. I sat across from La Perouse and drew what I could see with crinkled up eyes from the sun and the wind. I watched the planes and the big ships come and go and thought about the significance of the place.

Dusk at Coogee headland. I was surprised to come across the remains of a bush fire here. Although i do dimly recall something from maybe the summer before last? Shows how little time I spend in my old neighborhood these days. I really do feel like a visitor.

Local Colour is a lovely exhibition curated by Liz Williamson, on at UNSW galleries in Paddington right now. These four artists Margaret Rarru, Judith Kentish, Julie Ryder and HollyStory’s work were my favourite pieces. Don’t think I’ve ever seen such a deep black woven basket like this before.

Now we’re talking! This place is great. Just round the corner from all that shiny cockle bay wharf nonsense we get to real barnacles on the bottles. Great work on the research @cannylass67
