Artwork Description

Oil on canvas, ready to hang.

Signed on the front.

This artwork comes with an external frame

I have a deep affection for the soulful old homes and feel their loneliness when I paint them.

“This ole’ house once knew his children
This ole’ house once knew his wife
This ole’ house was home and comfort
As they fought the storms of life
This ole house once rang with laughter
This ole’ house heard many shouts
Now he trembles in the darkness when the lightning walks about.
Ain't got time to fix the shingles
Ain't got time to fix the floor
Ain't got time to oil the hinges nor to mend no window panes
This ole’ house is getting shaky
This ole’ house is getting old
This ole’ house lets in the rain
This ole’ house lets in the cold
Oh his knees are a getting chilly but he feels no fear nor pain
Cause he seeks a new tomorrow
Through a golden window pane”

This work will be available for purchase online and will also be on display at the Bluethumb Gallery in Richmond, Melbourne as part of the gallery's 'Bluethumb x Southern Buoy: 40 x 40' exhibition from May 2nd - July 1st. Interested collectors may inquire prior to this date.
