You’ve got to be in it to win it

You know, sometimes i just wonder how I get myself into situations. 

At the risk of over analysing things I think I do this: 

First, I get myself into a situation that is difficult to get out of. Then I procrastinate about what I can do about my situation until it is literally too late to do anything about it which, of course, leaves me no choice, or time, but to confront my circumstances head on and deal with whatever is at hand.

And so that is how I have come to be an entrant in the 2017 Brisbane City Council Recycling Art completion. One late night in April I submitted an entry form to the competition and, low and behold, for some peculiar reason (apparently they liked my sample of work that I submitted with my entry form) I was shortlisted as one of about eight (8) Brisbane artists to compete in the 2017 Salvage Recycling Art Competition

Example of my work 
My mission, should I decide to accept, is to go to one of the local Tip Shops, purchase item/s, and then create art from those items.

I accepted and may God be with me.
