Wraparound shade


A bit more shade for the waiting room at the Mission where people wait for counselling and referrals

Overarching Pattern


A big tree to sit under in the waiting room, which is starting to spread over the ceiling


The pattern Grace Woods is composing as a border on the right side of the Australiana Billabong, next to the storeroom door


The pattern starting to grow on the other side of the Billabong, near the main entrance to the hall


On the other side of the door, the corner seat in the park/waiting room

Sini in the park


At last I've added a figure in the waiting room. This is the ever-smiling Sinni (I hope I've spelled that right) sitting in the park - you'll have to imagine the bench she's sitting on for now and the portrait needs more paint, and some fixing. Hopefully it will spur me on to add a whole lot more people as well as dogs and cats, and of course, antechinuses

I also want to get on to drawing schematic drawings of the Last Supper, the Australiana Billabong and all the murals in the main hall to honour everybody in the community portrayed in them, to print in some commemorative merch maybe



The corner before I added Sinni. I've got a better camera and a tripod now, so I took a few less blurry photos of a few nooks

Antechinus


I asked Pastor Sam what animal he'd like to see by the Billabong - he said his kids would love some mice. Since its an Australiana  mural I'm painting some antechinuses - a few, maybe more - scampering around like hypermice, there's plenty of room around the doorframe - and they'd love to get into the storeroom and chew up everything

Rosellas



Rosellas feeding on a post that I can't quite get satisfied with yet.

Some antechinuses for Sam's kids might be good playing on the doorframe


Grace's pattern on the border at the right hand side of the Billabong - with a fish by Hilary Latta


The figtree is growing across the ceiling in the foyer


The park scene is a bit empty so I'm collecting photos to put some people and animals in there,

Leaves and patterns


I've been adding leaves to the tree in the foyer and thinking about people and animals to put in, because the scene is a bit empty so far. I haven't been in much recently but I'll be getting in more regularly


Some of the pattern Grace Woods has been drawing as a border to our Australiana Billabong in the main hall
