This was done as a wedding gift for friends.

The gentleman depicted is our friend's grandfather, but the image is a composite of him, from an old photo, with a photo that I took at Silverton while researching the Broken Hill Series. The figure was originally leaning against a ute, but that didn't fit with the concept of the piece, so it was substituted.

There are subliminal references to a nursery rhyme that I added as I drew the piece, but that's there for me, so I won't go into all that.
