Painting the TSB


 I finished last touches of my paining in the evening, which was a great time to paint because there was a  lovely cool breeze.
 Here's the story of introduced species: a fox and a rabbit. Beautiful animals in their own right but a pest as an non-native animal in Australia. My story is that I too am a member of an introduced species, white settlers who came to Australia. I want to welcome new visitors to Australia, reconcile myself as an introduced species and say SORRY to the owners of this land.

TSB painting

Today I started work on painting a TSB. That's a traffic Signal Box, in normal speak, its the grey box on the corner that houses the electrics for the traffic lights. Luckily for artists here in Brisbane we have an opportunity to put our artworks on TSBs. I started yesterday but it was boiling hot 34 degrees Celsius so I only did the undercoat. Today I started adding the design and putting in some colour but there's probably 2 more days work before completion.
