My painting has common characteristics of homes in Australia, on the periphery of most country towns, woodsheds were most popular, even to this day.

    Is this tree on your property? I have what appears to be the same tree and woodshed (but from slightly different angle) in watercolour I bought some decades ago from the artist (that must of been you) at an art craft exhibition at archers manor in Launceston.
    I love my painting, my dad grew up on a farm and always used to take me out to the bush and various farms , the gum tree and shed is so typical of the backyard of many farmhouses and although I never grew up on a farm it always makes me feel relaxed and at home when I look at it.
    Would love to add the oil version but am a pensioner these days and unfortunately cant afford it but nonetheless I love the one I have.
    Many thanks for doing the one I have it is much appreciated.
