...when the bus driver comes rushing down to elerted us that the bus had got bogged in the wet grass!!
After doing the ring around, our closest neighbour Gaye and longstanding resident of the area, rang another neighbour... minutes later we heard the sound of a Tractor in the distance and coming up the track. Thankfully Peter (our other neighbour) came to the rescue to save the day and hauled the bus out of the wet grass and back onto the gravel track again. Phew! That was close, these grounds are sure slippery in this weather - check out the heavy mist we had going.

It is some distance from the main road in, so I figured I best make extra arrows just incase!
The temptation to paint a little on me as well was just toooo hard to resist, teehee.
Yup, that worked...and one for the entrance too
Its abit like "wazzup! Kimbo?"

Maleny Image 9: Introduced COMA's next exhibition is to coincide with Weed Week - observed throughout the Shire and promoted through the Maleny Library. Our challenge to make an artwork via researching introduced species and how they have affected - or infected - our local enviroment...
My entry: "Farmer's friend!" the ole Cobblers' Pegs Bidens pilosa and ofcourse using my found objects approach...
My spin on it, is not so much on the negitave effects it has on our enviroment but how to perhaps consider its usefulness.
Bits and pieces gathered together to work with, see the old wire brush bottom right?
Perfect burrs for my Cobblers' peg!!!!!
...and what better way to use of my old typewriter from High School to translate Cobblers' Pegs story. It was a bit hard though without the backspace key!!
The finished piece, I've added a little touch of me into the piece - its a bit like Where's Wally and you really have to look closely to see it.
2D wall assemblage; silky-oak board, found objects, wall paper, cardboard, paper, oils, mounted onto canvas
