    More earthquakes Brett? How awful for you. The 'Shaky Isles' are really living up to their name.

    Interesting face. Love the rough edges and the canvas texture! A bit tribal in nature.

    Thanks Damasoci and Robyn!

    The novelty value of the EQs has well and truly worn off! And the geoscientists say this "swarm" ain't over yet. The worst is not getting a decent night's sleep. This too will pass. But I'm not getting much done :-)

    In a way, this has an Aztec style feel to me, or a south seas islander. . . which would make more sense in your context. And speaking of context, it can also be read as a sort of a cartoon of having earthquakes and aftershocks recorded on the psyche. In that way it's rather adept. Hope you're keeping safe.

    As a trompe l'oeil stunt I often found myself employing, a fun addition is to cast a shadow across the stucco. I dunno, but I often think of Robert Vickery who did a painting book for egg tempera which showed his work. He would often do children playing on the pavement in a playground with chalk drawings that they would put in for things like hop-scotch or children's doodles on the hard surface. And then if that layer weren't enough, he would have cast shadows over the whole business. Was a very interesting integration of textures with different, but very natural things being done to them. It's an easy way to add a little something as a variation -- not that your needs it. But my imagination just got triggered.

    Be well.

    Beautiful painting and so realistic, looks like it was done on one of Perth's beautiful beaches.
