    You have some interesting work. I like this one – a typical Aussie country scene from days gone by…

  • Thanks Mate, that’s what I wanted to portray with this painting. Ravenswood Qld is worth a visit if you like this kind of subject matter, similar to Hill End ,just rougher!

    I know the feeling…. we would play ‘kick the can’ lol
    Wonderful work!

  • Now all we need to do is – get the American kids to change the Can for a Soccer Ball and whammo in no time The United States of America would win the World Cup! Give Brazil and Germany something to think about!
    Thanks bicyclegirl , also for your positive view of my work! :o)
