In the process of setting up this website I was drawn back to my early days at art school - Canberra School of Art in the early 1980's and RMIT in the early 1990s. I discovered in the archives of my studio a folio of small drawings and photographs of lost paintings. Not worthy of a gallery within the main website, but worthy of documentation none the less, I have decided to post some of the images here in three journal entries. The interesting thing for me to remember is that my engagement with the domestic, with a sense of home, goes back a long way. It has transmogrified over the years but, it is there as a constant thread. This first journal entry shows drawings in pencil and charcoal from a group house in Canberra and an abandoned farmhouse on the outskirts, in the early 1980's.
