The Centurian 1908-2010 by Donna Macarone
Clear

This is a graphite sketch on A3 watercolour paper. This is a wonderful old Bushie called Kit. Sadly she passed away this year aged 101yrs old, just shy of her 102nd birthday.
Kit was a fabulous horsewoman, and worked hard all her life. She loved her brahman cattle and would be found regularly working in or around the yards on her property even in her mid 90’s. Her bushie sense of spirit inspired me to do this piece.
