Sins of the past

 

IMG_9903-001

Just found this painting buried in my old studio, it was painted by me 23 years ago,I had only been painting a couple of years. It was hanging in a local pub for years, but when the pub was sold it was gutted and the painting ended up in the skip…obviously it didn’t appeal to either the former or latter owners. A friend saw it and rescued it and returned it to me, it has been buried ever since. It’s a bit smoke damaged and scuffed but I cleaned it and another friend fell in love with it so I gave it to her.

So be warned….your sins will come back to haunt you….lol.

  1. What a lovely story Phil and great news that your painting has found a 'loving' home again.

    Not sure I want to be reminded of some of my earlier works ..... although I did decorate a child's bedroom walls with Disney characters about 30 years ago - probably buried under layers of wallpaper and/or paint now!!

  2. Wow - cool story! This is a mighty good painting for only painting a few years. I like the subject, and love the horse - the work is unique and interesting. I can tell why she liked it. Happy New Year!
