Matchstick Obsession

Over the last year or so, I have had a matchstick obsession.... firstly inspired by Brett Whitely and his sculpture of matchsticks, I then grew to love the varied forms of burnt matchsticks. Having done a series of these now i think i have truely "burnt" myself out with these icons. Plus I think they are possibly cursed... when i had my sculptures out the front of my house... we had a house fire... when i did the five canvas series "Generation Gap"... half of Victoria burnt in bush fires (Black Friday)... so i think tempting fate would be unwise!.... gotta love them but!... then move on...
