This is Jessica

Adrian and Jessica were washing the car, Jessica wanted her outline on the fence, Adrian obliged.



  1. Very appropriate for the land of the ‘dreamtime’. I like this for its two stage process: the making of the mark and the recording of it for a wider audience. What makes the latter part of the process work so well is the choice of how to frame the work: the amount of leaves and the hint of housing at the top and the slightly bumpy area of grass at the bottom set off the fence and its image very well. As does the tinting. The accidental coincidence of two eyes in the original surface of the planking helps complete the figure (or maybe they were made!). This is very viewable.

  2. An excellent capture and a fun example of child play and imagination. Almost a Banksy.

  3. Excllent. The initial image slightly alarmed me – what had charred the fence and who had saved a part from being burnt? How much paint did they get on them, or creosote? The I read the explanation an dlaughed as I thoght of my girls at play – recently we have had endless mudbaths in the ‘den’.

    Like John, I like the scrubby grass and slim view above the hedge too. They frame the core nicely.

    A lovely image that bears its accompanying text well.

  4. Brilliant. I love the whole idea of this and your caption is perfect as well. A lot of personality shown. Reminds me of gesture drawings in art classes years ago, but so much more fun.

  5. Brilliant it is indeed. I have revisited this picture many times, it is very captivating.
