Scribbled Painting

Janice Petersen gave this to me. She was driving up to Newcastle along the highway when her car got a flat. Stopping to change tires she noticed this sitting in the scrub by the side of the road. As far as artistic merit goes, I think the "back" of the painting is beating the front to the finish line. Apart from the actual face being scribbled over, the signature is also, for good reason obviously concealed. The text on the back has also been successfully hidden, though I can make out the word "Martin" and a small sticker "Blue Door Picture Gallery, 20 Thorne Street Chatswood (West Side). Because of the scribbling and hiding of identity, I'm guessing this was not "accidentally" lost.
