For many years now, at least 10 years, people have been anonymously decorating the sheep sculptures that celebrate this suburbs past history as a farm. Good taste never comes into it and apart from a father and small child I once saw adding a few pieces, I have never seen who does this.
I posted this on my ‘other’ blog (largely gardening and food), which was for many years the only blog I had, but I think this is something that my art friends will enjoy as well.
Every year I take photos of the sheep sculptures of Matthew Harding that were made for the Kambah Village Shopping Centre in 2002. I do this because every year, so far without fail, someone comes along and decorates the sheep for Christmas. OK they decorate them in the most random manner and with whatever decorations they can find, but decorate them they do.
Today I drew the sheep for the first time. OK just two of them, there are more.
