This room is the holiday home of a friend called Steve. The property is 3 hours drive north of Sydney in a place called Dungog. We went to have a look, to see if we like the area enough to move there ourselves. Coming from the city to a place way out in the bush/country is a daunting , yet delicious prospect! I lay awake most of the night completely freaked out by the remoteness of the place. I was thinking of the movie "wolf creek", and "deliverance". Neither I have seen, but the shorts were enough. I kept worrying about what I would do if a man and an axe were to come onto the property in the middle of the night. Then I worried about snakes, and spiders and rats and possums! Now I am home, I am exhausted, loving all the noises coming from the neighbours house, and grateful to be in civilization again. Oh....but I long to move to the country too!? How is this city chic going to overcome all my fears????
Anyway...... I finally finished this drawing late at night, when all but the axe murderer were asleep. Very "CLANDESTINE" of me dont you think?
