Thinking It Over

“Thinking It Over” wax pastels and coloured pencils. 28.5 x 23 cm. June 2021

A young woman sits cross-legged at East Fremantle jetty with the port of Fremantle laid out before her. Usually I need a seabird to soften this heavy industrial scene (in order for me to connect to it artistically) but a female human form serves just as well.

She reminds me of our eldest daughter, Emily. It isn’t Emily – but it could be – deep within herself – thinking it over.
