By way of introduction, I am a teacher of acrylic painting, book art and paper arts. I grew up in New Zealand and spent many childhood holidays in Lyttelton. In my teenage years I spent time in Christchurch and partied with the young people from Pyne Gould Guinness, so the recent earthquake is constantly on my mind. I have lived in England, Italy, and Jersey, C.I. before settling in Australia in 1978.

White Bay Power Station
White Bay Power Station had an Open Day yesterday. It's a huge derelict old place in Rozelle in Sydney, near a major intersection, so I drive by it quite often. By the time I read about it in the Inner West Courier, all the tours were full. Nevertheless we were encouraged to go along anyway and found a comfortable bench in the shade (it was hot, hot, hot) and drew the whole thing. We were able to go inside a few of the buildings and the interiors are not unlike Cockatoo Island.
