Description

While visiting Hawthorn Tram Museum I was touched by elderly gents being engrossed in the history of the heritage trams. Very poignant moments - I just had to paint just a few. Many hours were spent on each of the three works finished as I wanted to get the scenes just right with the hope of portraying the history and memories shared. The young woman walking blithely by while the sitting gent looks on at the history and passing of time reminds us that time is very fleeting.
