I found the canvas I used for “Dirt Music 2 “ lying in the gutter a few doors down from my studio in Nailsworth, South Australia. It was a bit grubby but otherwise in pretty good nick. It inspired a looser and more reckless approach to the painting. I’d loved the sound of the words since I’d read Tim Winton’s wonderful novel... so I stole the title...twice.
