After a long break from writing we are well into the new year. Over my break I’ve enjoyed the physical grunt of renovating my house and studio. I will share more about my studio organisation soon. Painting has been happening at a slower pace and I’ve been exploring movement. While drawing in the Adelaide parklands recently and met a young man practicing kickboxing. His movement intrigued me. He was light and fluid, with extremities that flicked. The space around him was filled with his imagination. I was in awe of how he used that space. I wondered who he was sparing with as he practiced? The flicks threw his energy towards a dreamed up ghost. He was in an awesome drama.
