When Good Artists turn Bad

Artists tend to collect odds and ends for no good reason. This morning’s trip to Vinnies to scour the used books resulted in another collection of absurdities as well as an old picnic basket, a wooden duck magnet and a genuine kangaroo skin bookmark.

At one stage I had a collection of little people that sort of began when one fell out of a second hand book about Bonnard at Braidwood.  I was never quite sure whether they would be useful but when a burst of large fleshy fungi appeared in the garden it was time for them to come out and play their part. The old skulls also became an interesting backdrop.
