‘My Pop, My Hero’
This work was part of a local exhibition run by Burrinja Cultural Centre, the ‘Upwey Archies’.
It had to be a portrait of someone important to me. I decided to use an old photograph of my grandfather, Bert. I used my imagination for the oranges, because he was an orange grower in Robinvale. I will never forget this beautiful man.

Mel, this is fantastic!!! I love the way you have captured his smile and spirit xx
What a fantastic image you’ve created Mel. A very personal piece with great depth of feeling. Love the monochromatic palette contrasted against the bright warmth of the oranges he grew.
