Smile on Number 971

Acrylic on Canvas, 900 x 600.

Depicting passengers on the City Circle SW6 tram number 971 in Latrobe Street, Melbourne, August 2008. My intention was to depict that outside the windows, Melbourne goes by at a different pace, while in the tram, people go into their own worlds, forming a microcosm of the city for the short while they are in there. That's my daughter, Susan, with the smile.

Now in the private collection of Ashleigh Thomas.
