LifeStory 8.Rainbow's End
Oils on Linen 66 x 76 cms (26 x 30 ins) In a private collection
A lifetime of determined effort, through all the obstacles that Nature routinely throws in the path of Australian farmers, has brought this couple to success and contentment at the end of their personal rainbow. The painting shows their property on The Darling Downs with its golden crop of barley and the privately-built road guarded by the owners' favourite tree. Their family includes a son and daughter, and is symbolized - in the portrait's foreground - by the strain of CharolaisxAngus cattle they have developed.
