Artwork description:

‘Tea Time’, oil on slim line stretched canvas with edges painted as part of the scene.
Finished in a soft sheen art varnish to avoid the glare from strong light.
Strung and ready to hang with title, signature and date label on rear.
A portrait of Clara my childhood friend’s mum as remembered from the late 60s early 70s.
My friend had many brothers and sisters & their home was always a hive of activity.
I returned to my home town a few years back and decided to visit my childhood haunts.
I visited Clara and was struck by how quiet it was when I entered the house.
Clara was all alone in the once hectic household, the children grown and dispersed. Much as I had done myself
many years back.
I depicted Clara in the style as I remembered her & the colours of the period.
I added the sparrows as her children.
Sparrows are represented in many of my works. Their presence in my garden reminds me of a family & the chatter
mimics the sounds of children at play.
