“Crane With Grasshopper” was begun around 2007 and appeared fully formed emerging quickly from some random strokes on the canvas. A hot Adelaide January night in 2011, saw it finished off. The "shower head" plants remind me of the Lotus Garden in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens I have loved since childhood. Poor old grasshopper... or perhaps not.
