The worst summer job I had was stuffing pillows in a factory. The sight of a pillow still gives me a shudder and a sleepless night. I am, however, extremely glad that Melbourne is still full of factories that make things. There is a factory in Fairfield that makes wooden mouldings for, amongst other things, picture frames. Here is what it looks like. For this picture I used Michael Harding oil paints. They are gob-smackingly good – like a tube of sunshine.
