Size: H:75cm x W:100cm
Materials: Recycled hand-dyed blanket and cotton knit. Linen thread.

In this small rural place, most people work in the nearest city leaving a village inhabited by children in the local school, the storekeeper, the lady doing the church flowers and anxiously waiting dogs. If you look closely you can see the direction of the city.

Although I took photo of local buildings, they don't look exactly like the real thing as I free-hand cut the shapes from plain blanket and the results are a bit wobbly - but then so is our village - it is quite old.

I forgot to add that this piece is currently at Pinnacles Gallery in Thuringowa in North Queensland. It might get chosen to go to a gallery in Brisbane after that, but that is up to the judge.

Love the background in this one. Very apt, considering how things actually look out your way at the moment. Level 5 restrictions begin here in town on Tues. We've ordered another tank.
