Pastel on brown Canson paper – 50cm x 35cm
A study of ‘body language’ at a Clearing sale! Upton is a small community in the hills in the Tarcombe area of Victoria. ‘Clearing’ sales are held when a farm is sold and all the goods and chattels are auctioned off. It is as much a social gathering as a sale. If you can’t find a bargain at least you can have a good yarn!
This painting was sold at the Ruffy Art Show in 2005.
