You need to read the story to understand this mad one:

My good friend Greg Furmage has two grandchildren with another on the way.

A sketch of a bandaid family

When first grandchild Jack was born and discovered initial communication skills he had issues with pronouncing ‘Grandad’. So Jack just called Greg … ‘Bandaid’. When Greg asked Jack “What’s your name?” Jack replied ‘Bandaid’. So then there were two Bandaids.

Confusing to no one of course.

Jack’s baby sister Sophie soon arrived and silently witnessed this backwards and forwards salutations of  ‘Bandaid’ which was no problem at all for Greg and Grandson Jack… and obviously not so confusing for young bright Sophie … because once she could utter she declared herself as ‘Mermaid’.

Mother Emily is now expecting her third child so will someone please come to the ‘aid’ of the naming department!

Any guesses? Is she having another Bandaid or another Mermaid?

One of the best photographers I know of is Meredith Oshea (Merri).

I have silently watched her work for years. She is in Melbourne and does major ‘street work’.

Here’s my interpretation of a photo Merri did of Ralph Reese.

I’m sticking with this duo tone theme for a while thus the rusty red fridge. In Merri’s photo Ralph is holding a mean looking rifle in his left hand. I chose to put it back in the cupboard. I dont like guns. We need another power model in this world.

Back in 2004 I picked up a little DL flyer attracted by a painting featured in an exhibition. The painting was ‘Bag of Apples’ by Pam Tippett. I’ve always admired it an thought it might look good in Duo Tone (Sepia and Green) … so I gave it a go. I realise I need to go back to books and do more practice on material loosely laid out.
