Kaff-eine for Heartcore: first painting completed in Rutledge Lane

The first painting for Heartcore is now complete! I painted the image in a single 11-hour painting session in challenging conditions last week in Rutledge Lane, Melbourne CBD.  Thank you to everyone who braved the cold + wet, + visited with company, coffee + food. Thanks also to the organisers of the All Your Walls event (of which this painting was a part) for your hard work + support, + to the National Gallery of Victoria, who sponsored All Your Walls.

Stay tuned for details about the next story to be painted, + information about when + where it will be completed…
