The Australia Council funded project The Sorry Tale is taking shape as a script, a verse novel and now I have printed extracts onto sheets that will be part of a folio to be exhibited at the NightLadder Collective exhibition 'In the Works' at the Webb Gallery, QCA Brisbane in July 2019. The images are a combined print/drawing process taken from digitised slides taken by my seaman father in the 1960s and 1970s.
There is a waterbowl for the birds outside Katharine Susannah Pritchard's writing cabin. I have seen 28 parrots, Wattlebirds and a Common Bronzewing Pigeon that have visited the garden during my residency.
The view from the writing desk with Perth on the horizon. It's been a very productive week with work done on my OzCo funded Verse Novel The Sorry Tale of the Mignonette
