My "best nine" for 2017. Ballet, watercolour, and sketching at home and afield with a little bit of library research at the alma mater. Plus "voting" yes for marriage equality. Now what will the new year bring? More of the same, I suspect, but here's hoping government doesn't abrogate its responsibilities again in 2018.

I may not have unpacked any books yet, but the music stand my dad made already has pride of place. #priorities

This assertively yellow Functionalist-Art Deco service station (c.1938-9) in Summer Hill is now painted white and is an Industrie Clothing shop. #tbt #throwbackthursday #summerhill #sydney #artdecoarchitecture #functionalistarchitecture

Quick interval sketch at the @ausballet Sleeping Beauty. One of the advantages of being in a 1920s John Eberson-designed theatre is that you can use the statuary for "life" drawing practice :) And the ballet? I give it three chandeliers!
