Old sheds, Rural New Zealand and other things...

 I guess this is where it began, I awoke one day to the realization that many of the farms around us were being sold into subdivisions, ride on mowers chewed grass where once cows and sheep grazed away quietly. Old farm buildings and disused machinery was being bulldozed or scrapped and our culture was changing rapidly. I began to sketch a few that took my fancy, and so the pictures grew in number. I will continue to add to this range, with drawings of fencing, harvesting, haymaking and the like, including vintage tools and machinery of course.

Sadly when I look back, I find already many of these old sheds have vanished. But in these drawings at least, they carry on. Each drawing is framed in my handmade, recycled timber frames, some are beautiful clean light Rimu with a little oil and polish to bring out the glow, others are dented and scarred, oiled and polished to enhance their obvious history.

These rustic scenes are mounted, with a forest green matt and protected under non reflective glass, and of course are ready to hang.

470mm x 350mm overall size , $70.00 each

most of my pen and ink drawings are available as A5 folded cards, complete with envelope at $2 each
