Early Morning Milk

‘Early Morning Milk’, acrylic & enamel, 90x120cm

Finally finished a painting of Josh Mayer and Nathan (my son Sam’s former workmates) milking at ‘Binga’. I was drawn to this humble image and the regularity of everyday farm life   I tried to portray the warmth that emanated from the sunlight streaming into the milking shed as the day began, the boys heads resting against the cow’s body as they milked. Unfortunately Nathan was so tall that his milking positon was a little unconventional.
