Bob - the 'Dirt on the Shirt' man

A few weeks ago my good friend and teacher asked me and another couple of artists around to her studio to paint Bob, a character on the island who has, for many years, made his living by dying clothes with the red soil of which Coochiemudlo Island is largely comprised.  Bob is about to leave the island and intends to carry on his business in the Byron Bay region of northern New South Wales where weekly markets will provide more convenient outlets for his merchandise.  We will miss Bob.
