More pictures from Footscray
Two pictures I drew at the market on Friday were of vegetables that I don't normally see in the shops in Geelong.
The third picture is a sad tale. Lying down in front of a disused shop not far from the market was a middle-aged woman, about forty perhaps with a begging plate. She asked us for coins. I said, 'Are you waiting for your dole?' She said no. I was so surprised to see a beggar here, and a woman just lying down on the hard cement. Do you give money to beggars or not? We did not this time. Peceli said he should have talked with her more, ask her to stand up at least. We were wondering just what was her story. I did not draw the woman on the spot, just did a sketch later on, remembering her.
