Over the past five years I have enjoyed a great working relationship with the owner of the rebranded Green Leaf Cafe in Morningside. Every visit to the cafe is a pleasure as I always leave with a belly full of food and a head full of ideas about the next piece I can create on their walls. This time I wanted to paint a piece which was vibrant and modern but also keeping in theme with the cafe’s new corporate colours.
The Dragon Boats which cover the front windows encapsulate a different side of Brisbane. I wanted to showcase the energy of both the rowers and the synergy of the natural environment working with the built environment. Hopefully the rowers who visit the cafe for their weekly catch up will appreciate the likeness.
