1 The Rocket, Enmore Park, 40cm x 40cm acrylic on canvas 2007
As with most of our friends, until recently I lived in the city to be near my job, although weekends were a chance to escape. But on work days I would pass this children’s play rocket in Enmore Park on my way to the bus stop and seeing it on my way home on winter nights with the moon behind it was always cheery. It has now become part of our preserved heritage! Children still play in it, although the top section has been blocked off to avoid injuries – some of our old playground equipment doesn’t stand up to today’s scrutiny for safety!
