‘The Mook’ is one of my favourite classics. Recently reloved it is just sitting there.
This classic Australian fibro beach house at Mollymook, called ‘The Mook’, sits quietly behind the sand dunes in anticipation of the next guests. So in anticipation of a possible near future addition I thought it best to capture it in its near original condition.
It was chaotic up there due to the Noosa Triathlon so I went back to the room and got pencil and paper then zoned out doing this. I was miles from the hubbub but right in the centre of it. This was a good realisation that all you have to do is loosen up. I now use this one as my screen saver to remind me to sketch … whilst I’m not doing or adjusting photos.
Waiting for the Rugby to start the light on the dresser caught my eye. So here it is.
The top two pieces are from my great uncle’s estate and came from the early gold rush days in Victoria. I have the full set as well. Interesting the way china ages. The two bottom pieces back right were made near Tolga Qld of Paper Clay and fired in an open fire. I made the one to the right. Kim and Steph made the other one together and they collectively guided me to get my one together. Prize pieces. The white cubes are candles.
This is Bernie my accountant. He’s a money box. An antique money box from where else but China. I have had him for a long time and he minds the accounts section of my office … he’s the only one there. He lives on a shelf in my office and keeps an eye on me and things.
Although I’m happy with this result for a first attempt there was a very steep learning curve. I really need to do some work on learning how to mix colour. Front right is supposed to be an apple! Looks like a peach. You live .. you learn.
