As a bit of a break from all that heavy black and white work here is something a little different. One of the experiences that has most influenced my art practice was the time spent on a mango farm in Broome, Western Australia. I would get up in good time and go drawing in the orchards when it was quiet, spending the rest of the day picking, eating and boxing mangoes. This culminated in getting the terrible mango rash, that left me stricken with itchy welts. Grasses below is one of the pictures that I made from memory of sitting out in the blazing sun.
