Today we have another piece of my artwork. I was going to do this last night but ran into issues with the video, which have since been corrected.
This has undoubtedly got you intruiged as to why I have a video accompanying one of my works of art. It’s a bit of a story, so let’s begin with the picture.
This is a picture drawn with a combination of pencil and crayon, in the year 2000 (from memory it was late 2000). In it you can see some flowers, a duck under a table with a fish in a fishbowl on top, as well as a rooster, a tree, plenty of grass, the sky and the sun.
At this time in history, my good friend Daniel Gibson was working as the breakfast host on 2CA and weather presenter on Prime Local News (before it changed name to “Prime News” and was later axed…as was common in regional television circles at the time). I mailed the picture to Daniel at Prime Television, and he subsequently put it to air as the weather picture.
I recorded this on VHS, and have since put it on DVD and converted it to a few web friendly formats for your convenience. Depending on your operating system and installed software, you should be able to play one or more of the following, which I have listed in quality order.
Each video is 28 seconds long.
I suppose if I were to ustilise the weather stats in the video I could probably find out the date of recording.
For the record, the lineup on Prime Local News at that time was Catherine Garrett reading the news, Phil Lynch presenting sport and Daniel Gibson as the weatherman.
