Acrylic on Canvas
size is approx. 80cm x 80 cm
This is taken from an old photograph shown to me by my friend and neighbour of her son collecting eggs in their back yard in Haberfield, Sydney. Her son is now about 40 years old so I painted this secretly and gave it to her for Christmas.
I tried to paint it in the style of a children’s picture book as I used to work as a children’s libraarian and I love so much of the illustrations in childrens’ books.
I hope that she liked it.
