Peek through the window of the abandoned paint factory and catch a glimpse into the life and work of Bronwyn, squatter and artist. Bronwyn is a marionette, feisty and passionate, whose bohemian existence includes painting miniature canvases and logging her dreams into a faded artist's journal. Watch and be drawn into this intriguing world in miniature which will delight and amaze as Bronwyn comes to life. And if she spots you staring - she might even come out to play.
This act is finally available for sale, and on Friday night I had a little showing at my place for a few friends, and decided to actually allow people to put real money on the plate for the first time. My plan at this stage is to sell the act for private performances rather than busk, so the tips added to the plate are pocket money more than anything. On Friday night my earnings netted me the amazing sum of $5.75. Wow - I'm rich, eh? It was interesting getting feedback from people - many people commented that Bronwyn's asking for money made them laugh and her requests were up there with the favourite bits of the show. They also liked the shoe polishing at the start and several people commented that they felt she was "real", a big compliment for me. One of my friends brought his housemate, Luke, an artist, and while he was watching the show he did this lovely little sketch. What captivated me most, I think, was actually the rendition of our kitchen behind the set - it touched my my happy-to-be-home nerve with its familiarity.
