I can't remember what year I completed the original piece at Riverside Skatepark, Tannum Sands... sometime in the mid 2000's. Anyway after a fresh coat of paint it looks brand new again.
Since the early 2000’s, I have visited Aramac on numerous tours Central Queensland. I returned in July of this year, when I saw four of my murals at the local school still looking good with the exception of my first creation which had seen better days. I called into Aramac State School on my way between Barcaldine and Muttaburra, and I was in lucky enough find a group of volunteers on the grounds and the Acting Principal in her office on a Saturday. Permission was granted to re-paint the deteriorated space themed mural so I jumped straight to it. Time was limited as I still had some way to travel that afternoon if I was to avoid driving through peak kangaroo traffic after sunset. It was ambitious attempting a 3D piece in a short timeframe with zero planning but the wall called for something special. Hot outback winds were gusting and the sun rays intensified throughout the afternoon. I was happy with the final outcome and the school is so satisfied they have made contact and offered to remunerate me for the artwork which I undertook without any commercial arrangement. The spontaneity of unplanned murals can mean they turn out to be the most memorable experiences.
Cyan, White and Tangerine etc.
