Dead Crocodile: Part 2 - The Curse by 

Oil and gel medium on canvass.
600 × 1500mm framed.
We now fast forward 2 minutes where the neighbour has come over, maybe to apologise or maybe to complain about the broken fence. Either way the farmers grief has turned to anger, fuelled by the loss and possibly bolstered by his wife who stands by his side. Although now she finds herself restraining him from potential violence rather than comforting him, as she had done seconds before. The neighbour, even if he had any remorse in his heart, responds to the farmers angst with equal hostility. The sky darkens in the background and the smoke emenating from the farmhouse has ceased. We, as the observer, are apart of the scene as the woman holds our gaze, as she did in the first panel, almost appealing for help.
The anger and misunderstanding between men leads us again to the brink of war.

    Anxious to find out if there’s a part 3!

  • There is a part 3 – painted at the same time. Part 3 is armeggeddon time. It always seemed so seperate to the other 2 as it is darker (due to it being several hours later at night) and I wasnt as happy with it.
    I should put it up. Look out for it in the near future.

    The farmer’s wife does command our attention in this pieces. I love that her hand is on his reddened face almost as if she were trying to restrain his words as well.

    I hope you do continue with more australian stories. In our family we have one based on the redback on the toilet seat. My uncle was bitten on his B***s not once but twice. The fist time he sprayed the outdoor dunny. The second time he was so angry he poured petrol down the bowl and blew the whole thing up !
  • Hey I like that. I didnt think of the restraining of his words as well. It usually starts with words doesnt it and then with guys it escalates pretty quickly after that. I love the redback story. There is a painting definetly in this.Or a cartoon. Or an animation. You could keep getting more ridiculous each time. Until finally the countryside for kilometres around is denuded, barren,scorched and pitted after the use of some pretty heavy military hardware and yet he is still getting bitten on the butt. Great story.
