"I've had fun over the years doing copies of the world's
most famous painting and twisting it about.. I didn't like the Mona Lisa
much, but now I do have big affection for her. She always comes out
differently, not like the original at all, and sometimes a bit rushed, I
admit!! But Leonardo painted Mona over many years, and the original is
quite tiny.. Mine are created in a few days, in the heat, on dirty pavement
surfaces, with hundreds of people asking me those (same three!!!)
questions... There are a few not included here, from the "olden"
pre-digital days when I took terrible photos!

An allegory of Freo icons. Freo Lisa drinks local
red-back beer on the cappucino strip outside the Markets during the busker
festival. Seagulls steal her fish and chips under yellow sunflowers,
while performers Lucky Rich, Rumplestiltskin, Flaming utterflies and Isobell
Neccessary perform on the beach. A white pointer chases a surfie in
front of the Lewin square rig ship. Freo Lisa'a dreadlocks blow in the
"Doctor" wind, her Dockers Football jersey is pinned with the Aboriginal
landrights flag, she wears a peace pendant, and is burning incense whilst
reading about the dingo flour silo...
