Wishing DJW a birthday as festive as this jacket today. Perhaps some new, more versatile wardrobe items might be in order for his birthday, although he certainly turns heads in the local Woolworths.

Citizens of the world are battling the devastating fallout from unexpected disasters such as fire, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and so on.

When facing adversity, the best of humanity is often revealed. Theodore Roosevelt once declared, โ€œDo what you can, with what you have, wherever you areโ€ and I like to think people do.

Events of late have also shown me the monumental value of crowd funding on a large scale. Firstly, giving power back to the individual to make a difference (no matter how small) and in addition to the financial element, a much needed boost of morale to those affected - effectively saying the world can see your plight and supports you!

At a more grassroots level, Iโ€™d like to acknowledge the volunteers giving their time, sweat and expertise. My son in law David has travelled from Qld to fire affected areas to use his shopfitting experience help rebuild fencing and outdoor structures - proud is an understatement!

I wondered for a while how I could best contribute my resources and skills as an artist and several opportunities have presented themselves. The most recent being the chance to illustrate a tablecloth for auction on a holiday train journey with Great Southern Rail to Adelaide which raised $4,100 for Bushfire Relief. What an emotional experience!

I urge everyone to keep doing the best with what they have. How utterly terrible and wonderful is life.

When asked by DJW to prepare notes for a serious 2020 Overview - we arrive dutifully with carefully prepared spreadsheets, statistics, potential proposals and tenders in hand.

Instead, he offers up his sketch pad with a brightly coloured illustration of the whimsical year ahead. Apparently he was an accountant once.

The dead artist don’t need the money but the kids do

In the 80โ€™s, DJWโ€™s artwork โ€˜The Gatheringโ€™ was the very first of hundreds (possibly now thousands) of his images to go into reproduction.

The print features the very popular Rainbow Lorikeet Series distributed by QE Designer Gifts at the time, which extended into hand painted clothing, glassware and ceramics. DJW states โ€œas fast as I could paint them, they were selling themโ€ and consequently suffered โ€˜birdie burnoutโ€™.

DJW finally revisited the rainbow lorikeet during teaching this week. If you compare the pictures side by side, you can see what has happened to his brain over the past 40 years ๐Ÿคฃ

Important lesson for creatives:
To be valued, you must value yourself first ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿปโ€œWhen I first started working as a photographer, I was doing so many jobs for free. Nobody would pay me, but theyโ€™d offer dinner. Or drinks. Or publicity. Or experience. Or connections. Or insight. Even though I felt like my work was worth more, I never thought I was in a position to negotiate. Iโ€™d become so small when discussing compensation. Iโ€™d shrink. I needed everyone to like me. I assumed that if people liked me, theyโ€™d respect me. Theyโ€™d treat me with dignity. Theyโ€™d value my work. And theyโ€™d eventually pay me for it. But insteadโ€”they kept asking me back without pay. I think itโ€™s so hard for creators to get out of that cycle, but my mom gave me the best line to use: โ€˜Iโ€™m sorry, but I canโ€™t afford to do that for free.โ€™ I still do free gigs, but only on my terms. Only if they provide value beyond a personโ€™s gratitude. Iโ€™m never aggressive or mean. But Iโ€™m clear. Iโ€™m not sure what Iโ€™m worth to them. But I know what Iโ€™m worth to myself. And I want it put in writing. Iโ€™m still nice about it. Iโ€™m still polite. But Iโ€™m more dominant. Well, maybe not dominant. Actually I will say dominant. You can still be dominant and nice.โ€

Unfortunately DJW has had to withdraw his involvement as a performer and mentor at the upcoming Arts Ablaze Festival due to ill health.

Not all bad news however, as his very lovely and underpaid daughter will be taking a selection of his artworks (some pictured) to be displayed at the gorgeous Bromelton House Homestead for the duration.

DJW has also donated a limited edition print to the Scenic Rim Council to auction for Bushfire Relief, stay posted for those details too.

Wishing DJW a speedy recovery!

So much to see and interpret. Mind-boggling!!

Blast from the past!

We received this lovely message about a novelty artwork DJW would have painted 30 years ago as an attraction at โ€˜Koala Townโ€™. Itโ€™s great to reflect on past experiences and to see how much his style has progressed and changed.

Thank-you for sending it through โค๏ธ

What a glorious Saturday! I trust everyone is making the most of this spectacular โ€˜winterโ€™ day- how blessed are we?!

For those who were planning to visit DJWโ€™s Winter Sun exhibit and take part in one of the Artist Talks on either Saturday 17th or 24th August - the Gallery space is inaccessible due to the beautiful location being utilised for Weddings. If we could ask you to attend the talks on either Sunday 18th or 25th August instead.

If Sunday doesnโ€™t work for you, shoot us a private message and weโ€™ll arrange a time over the exhibit for DJW to meet for a chat on a weekday!

Very much looking forward to sharing Winter Sun with you and thank-you for your understanding!
